Will Conard established a study abroad programme which grew into the Fashion & Design Study Abroad Programme at Regent’s. Thousands of students have benefited from Will’s legacy by coming to study with us in the heart of London.
His efforts in establishing and developing strong relationships with universities and colleges across the US was the key to the great success he brought to his work and he was admired with much affection by students and faculty alike.
Sadly, Will died some years ago, but his name lives on in these wonderful scholarships, which enable talented students to experience studying in London. The Will Conard Scholarships for Fashion Design and Fashion Merchandising celebrate Will’s work and ensure that its benefits will continue to be enjoyed by students into the foreseeable future.
