The Barbara Fultz Women In Advertising Scholarship, founded in 2014, is jointly presented 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 2019 award will be presented at the Women in Advertising Panel Event in March and will also be honored during The Richmond Show.
