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 Massachusetts seniors who plan to attend an accredited college or technical school to study advertising, communications, marketing or graphics arts and will be attending in September 2015 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 2015, one $1000 scholarship will be awarded. Completed scholarship applications and all support materials must be submitted to the Ad Club and postmarked by Friday, February 27, 2015. 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.
