Abercrombie & Fitch
Abercrombie & Fitch (A&F) has partnered with NSHSS to advance global leadership among young scholars. They have established the Abercrombie & Fitch Global Diversity & Leadership Scholar Awards open only to NSHSS members.
The worldwide competition is based on essay submissions from NSHSS members exploring their perspectives on the theme of diversity and inclusion. Submissions are judged on ingenuity and quality and scholarships will be awarded each year to the top candidates.
"In a world so connected by commonalities yet sometimes divided by differences, this partnership is exciting because it creates a platform where tomorrow's leaders--from around the world--can provide a thoughtful perspective on why it is important to embrace differences," said Todd Corley/Senior Vice President, Diversity & Inclusion. "It provides us a unique opportunity to identify the type of talent we need to help grow our brands domestically and internationally; we are able to support the growth and development of tomorrow's leaders through scholarship and education."
A&F also sponsors member receptions held in conjunction with select NSHSS member recognition events. We also want to recognize A&F as one of the sponsors of the NSHSS Fee Waiver Program which covers the membership cost for students who qualify scholastically for membership but do not have the financial means to join.
