Congrats to Jessica Jakobsson, the 2019 Carole Sloan Scholar.
“I am incredibly grateful to be the recipient of the Carole Sloan Memorial Scholarship this year. I am an international student from Sweden who had big dreams of moving to New York City and attending FIT. The Home Products Development program turned out to be the perfect choice for me. During my first year I have been academically challenged, gained valuable professional skills, and learned about the industry. I have had the opportunity to apply this knowledge at trade shows, showroom visits, and as an intern. I am excited to start my senior year and to honor the legacy of Carole Sloan.” ~ Jessica Jakobsson, Class of 2019
The Carole Sloan Memorial Scholarship was established in 2011 by Stephen Pond, founder of Home Textiles Today and Furniture Today, in honor of Carole Sloan who was a longtime editor and writer with the publications. The Home Products department is grateful for the continuous gift which honors a FIT Home Products Development student each year in pursuing their education and passion for the home industries.
