The About Love Scholarship Program
In 2021, Tiffany & Co. pledged $2 million in scholarship funding for students in the arts and creative fields at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) through 2024. Last year, the About Love Scholarship was awarded to over 60 qualifying students at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, Norfolk State University in Virginia, Bennett College in North Carolina, University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, and Central State University in Ohio. The scholarship beneficiaries for the 2022–2023 academic year will be awarded to 60 qualifying students from the creative arts and communications fields across all five participating schools on a financial need basis.
“Through Tiffany Atrium, we have broadened access and exposure for HBCU students and diverse talents over the past several months. The relationships we are building under our Education Pillar strengthen our brand. From the second year of our About Love Scholarship campaign to our first LVMH Métiers d’Excellence apprenticeship program and connection with the Harlem’s Fashion Row, we have made meaningful progress towards our goals,” said Mary Bellai, Global Chief Human Resources Officer, Tiffany & Co., “The most exciting part is that this is only the beginning.”
