The US fashion retailer also said it will be offering tuition
reimbursement as a benefit to qualifying associates to further promote and
build on education and recruiting opportunities at the company.

The scholarship will begin accepting applications in spring 2021.

“We have always believed that one of the best investments we can make is
in our people. The REAL Change Scholarship for Social Justice demonstrates
AEO’s commitment to help end racism, discrimination and inequality while
providing educational support for the next generation of leaders,” said AEO
CEO Jay Schottenstein in a statement.

“Together we are making real – and lasting – change to build an even
stronger, more diverse workplace that provides opportunities for our
associates to continue to develop and grow within our AEO family.”
