The GUESS Foundation also supports the GUESS Scholars Program
in partnership with the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM). Every year, the program grants two outstanding FIDM students a scholarship covering full tuition for the academic year. “I believe there is nothing more valuable than a fresh and creative mind flourishing in education… the GUESS Scholars Program is just another way we can stand behind and support the next generation of fashion.” – Paul Marciano, President of the GUESS Foundation Best Buddies Challenge
