RumChata Foundation Provides $20,000 Fellowship

The first ever RumChata Foundation Post-Graduate Fellowship for Fashion Design was presented recently as part of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s annual fashion exhibition.

The $20,000 fellowship was presented to Benjamin Larose and will allow him to continue his fashion design work professionally beyond his Master of Design graduate studies.

The RumChata Foundation introduced the award to celebrate the passion and drive it takes to create and bring to life an idea that started from one’s imagination and vision.
