CLUB 21 SCHOLARSHIP

To mark Club 21’s 40th Anniversary in 2012, we launched the Club 21 Scholarship to support exceptional talent in the creative, fashion and retail industries. Recognising that financial support for further education in these fields is limited, we are proud to support these outstanding individuals with personal vision, drive and potential.
