The Cordwainers provide scholarships, bursaries and prizes to students of footwear and leather goods at the London College of Fashion (part of the University of the Arts), the University of Northampton, Capel Manor College, Enfield, and De Montfort University.
The Cordwainers’ BA Footwear Scholarship is a prestigious prize awarded each year to a talented student at the London College of Fashion to fund their final project. This prize was worth over £3,000 last year.
At the University of Northampton, the Cordwainers offer scholarships to the top three Footwear Fashion students in all three years. Similarly, the Cordwainers give prizes to leatherwork students at Capel Manor College in Enfield.
A new link was forged in 2008 with the footwear department at De Montfort University, further demonstrating the Cordwainers’ commitment to this sector. For a full list of scholarships and bursaries in 2012 please visit the Awards section.
