Tamika Angelica Nurse was a fashion-forward professional who had a passion for helping others.

Tamika published two books to guide women she referred to as "IT" girls: "The IT Girl Rules: It’s Getting Haute in Here," and "The IT Girl Rules: Get Hired and Stay Hired." In essence, the IT Girl Rules offer advice for any woman striving to become her own superwoman. Through these books, Tamika shared her voice and left an indelible mark on countless women.

This scholarship aims to honor Tamika A. Nurse's legacy by supporting young women who share her passions and are following in her footsteps.

Any underrepresented minority female high school or undergraduate student who is Christian and studying business with a focus on fashion, maintaining at least a 2.5 GPA, may apply for this scholarship, with preference given to applicants with volunteering experience.

To apply, please articulate what being an "IT" girl means to you and which rules you intend to apply to your fashion career. Additionally, please reflect on the following questions:

1) How have you overcome adversity?

2) How do you wish to impact your community in the future?

Your responses to these questions will provide further insight into your character and aspirations, aiding the selection committee in choosing the most deserving candidate.
