FIT Fashion Merchandising Management major Evan Chisholm, of Jamestown, NC, has been selected as the top recipient of the highly competitive National Retail Federation Foundation’s Ray Greenly Scholarship, and will receive $25,000. Chisholm won over finalists from MIT, Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, and Texas A&M. Over 100 undergraduate and graduate students from across the country applied for the scholarship.
Two additional Fashion Merchandising Management students were among the ten semi-finalists. They are Christina Lau, of East Brunswick, NJ, and Erika Renstrom, of Umea, Sweden. They, along with Chisholm, attended the Shop.org Summit and Student Program in Seattle, Washington, as their award.
The Ray Greenly Scholarship was established to provide financial support to college students pursuing a degree in any field relevant to digital retail. The NRF Foundation, a division of the National Retail Federation, helps students build a career path in the field.
