Advertising Club of Richmond Scholarships
Currently the Club offers two scholarships to qualifying students, the Harry Jacobs Scholarship and the Barbara Fultz Women in Advertising Scholarship.
Harry Jacobs Scholarship
The Harry Jacobs Scholarship, jointly presented by the Ad Club and the Martin Agency, recognizes extraordinary creative talent and is awarded annually to an outstanding student at VCU’s Brandcenter. The scholarship aids that student’s development and supports the Brandcenter’s mission of excellence in advertising education.
Barbara Fultz Women in Advertising Scholarship
The Barbara Fultz Women In Advertising Scholarship was founded in 2014 by Elevation and the Richmond Ad Club to honor the career and contributions of Barbara Fultz, longtime owner of Fultz + Associates and former Advertising Person Of The Year who was a pioneer for women in the Richmond advertising community. The $2,500 scholarship is awarded annually to one undergraduate woman who plans a career in advertising, either in creative, account management or production. It is presented at the Richmond Ad Club’s annual awards celebration, The Richmond Show.
The Barbara Fultz Women in Advertising Scholarship is open to women who have declared their major in the Virginia Commonwealth University Robertson School of Media and Culture Advertising Sequence (whether Strategic or Creative) and who are rising seniors and who have a grade point average of at least 3.2. Applications for fall semester 2017 will be accepted from January 1, 2017 – February 28, 2017.
