The Zalora Scholarship

The Zalora Scholarship gives a P35,000 grant plus an internship opportunity with Zalora. Zalora welcomes applicants from all tertiary institutions, including undergraduates and students from vocational schools. Having a passion for fashion is a plus, but you will be assessed mainly based on academic results and the quality of your entry.


The Zalora scholars shall not only hold an outstanding curricular performance, but also display creativity in engaging the theme. The scholars are expected to show acute analytical skills, and reflect the key Zalora values in the entry.


Zalora is an online fashion retailer that believes in making fashion accessible. The core of the business is to bring high street labels to Asia in a convenient way. The company also seeks talented tech geeks who love numbers and codes as much as affordable fast fashion.


All scholars shall get the opportunity to gain valuable insights from the e-commerce industry. Sometimes, the theme changes. For 2017, the theme is how to redesign the online shopping experience for your generation of shoppers and explore how your shopping experience changes in ten years time, both online and offline. Essays should be between 500 to 800 words long.
