Advertising Club Scholarship Applications Available
SPRINGFIELD — The Advertising Club of Western Massachusetts scholarship committee announced that scholarship applications are now available online at adclubwm.org. Applications will also be available through guidance departments at high schools in Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin counties, or by contacting the Ad Club at (413) 736-2582.
Western Mass. seniors who plan to attend an accredited college or technical school to study advertising, communications, marketing, or graphics arts are encouraged to apply. The scholarship must be applied against tuition and fees at the school. Candidates will be judged on academic performance; extracurricular activities; community service and/or work experience; a demonstrated interest in advertising, communications, marketing, or graphic design; personal recommendations; and a letter of introduction outlining future plans.
In 2016, the club will award two $1,000 scholarships, rather than one, thanks in part to a donation from Garvey Communication Associates Inc. to fund a second award.
Completed scholarship applications and all support materials must be submitted to the Ad Club and postmarked by Friday, Feb. 26. Scholarship decisions are made by the scholarship committee of Advertising Club of Western Massachusetts, and are considered final. The scholarship will be awarded at the Ad Club’s Creative Awards show in May.
