The Met Gala, renowned for its exclusive guest list, extravagant outfits, and thematic masterpieces, serves as a canvas for celebrities, designers, and artists to express their interpretations of the given theme. Each year, the Gala sets the trend for the upcoming fashion season and pays homage to the intricate relationship between fashion and social, political, and cultural dialogues.

Pictured in the image is Zendaya from the Met Gala 2018. She is also one of the co-chairs for the upcoming 2024 Met Gala, “The Garden of Time.” If you are a Zendaya fan, we encourage you to check out our Zendaya Superfan scholarship, too! Pictured on the right is Rihanna from 2015. 

Tell us about your favorite Met Gala theme and the year it occurred. Delve into the array of outfits that graced the red carpet and select the one that stood out as the most exemplary of the theme and the one that perhaps missed the mark. Talk about the aesthetic appeal, and don’t be afraid to consider the outfit's relevance to the theme, its cultural significance, and the statement it aimed to make.

This scholarship is perfect for artists, those obsessed with pop culture, and people who want to pursue the fashion industry. Regardless of your background, we want to hear your thoughts on your favorite Met Gala themes and outfits accompanying them. This scholarship is open to all education levels, with no GPA requirement. We will announce the winner on May 6th, 2024, the night of the Met Gala! This scholarship is ending soon, so apply today!
