SPO Scholarship Program

Welcome to the Sewing Parts Online's Community Design Scholarship program, where we're helping creative students pursue higher education!

You have the talent and we're here to support your sewing dreams. Whether you're looking to be the next headliner at Fashion Week or design the latest home decor, your skills are valuable and important. Don't let the rising cost of education hold you back. Our scholarship is meant to help offset the cost of formal education for the sewists chasing their dreams.

Missouri State University

MSU's Fashion and Interior Design program boasts on-campus garment construction laboratories and state-of-the-art computer labs equipped with the widely-used Kaledo design software. The student is able to virtually combine design concepts and fabric choices efficiently in the computer lab. MSU works directly with local firms and suppliers to provide accents, from wall paper to flooring, to interior design students. As a fashion student, you'll build on your sewing skills and designs while networking with well-connected alumni and abroad programs.
