INTERNATIONAL FIELD EXPERIENCE SCHOLARSHIP
Terms of Reference
PURPOSE
The Chip and Shannon Wilson School of Design is committed to educating design leaders
who can ethically transform diverse ideas through strategic design thinking, operate
within a changing global context, innovate with current and cutting-edge technology,
and foster strong connections with the design community both locally and globally.
To advance this goal, Chip and Shannon Wilson have committed $60,000 per year in
Scholarship funding over the next 5 years (September 2014 through September 2018) to
fund international travel for students and faculty in the Bachelor of Design: Fashion and
Technology and Post-Baccalaureate in Technical Apparel Design.
The purpose of this travel will be to expand student and faculty understanding and
expertise in global perspectives and practices in the fashion and technical apparel
industries. The fund will support students and faculty in non-credit field opportunities
and extend their experiences beyond their program curricular offerings.
These opportunities will be self-directed, not under the auspices of KPU courses.
Students and faculty are expected to develop their international experience in
conjunction with industry related or institutional partners and will have access to an
established list of contacts but will not be limited to these partnerships.
