Carole Sloan Scholar

Nicole Alper, a student majoring in Home Products Development at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), has been named the 2016 Carole Sloan Scholar by the college. Nicole received $2,500 for achieving the highest GPA in the Home Products Development program. Stephen Pond, founder of Home Textiles Today and Furniture Today, created the endowment in honor of Carole Sloan who was a longtime editor and writer with the publications. The Home Products department is grateful for the gift which honors a student each year in pursuing their education and passion for the home.

“As a transplant from South Florida, attending school in New York was always my dream. Thanks to the Home Products Development program, I have been exposed to experiences and knowledge I didn’t know existed. Through trips to the High Point Furniture Market, the International Housewares Show, and an upcoming trip to Maison & Objet in Paris, I have been challenged and participated like an industry professional. I have interned with multiple companies and found my skill set applicable in every situation. I am honored to be the Carole Sloan scholarship recipient this year, and hope to contribute to her amazing legacy in years to come.”     Thank you!  Nicole

Congratulations Nicole!
The Home Products Development Department
