The American Advertising Federation of the Black Hills’ Scholarship Program was established to assist talented high school seniors and post-secondary students in their studies of advertising and related fields. The scholarship awards students who, in addition to showing creativity and promise, have demonstrated leadership qualities through employment, participation in school and community activities, volunteer work and/or projects.
The scholarship will be awarded to a full-time student pursuing a degree in advertising or related fields in South Dakota. Applicants will be evaluated by their employment and community experience, the letters of recommendations, application and essay.
When awarded, the scholarship will be applied against the student’s tuition as outlined in the agreement between the Board of Directors and the American Advertising Federation of the Black Hills.
