Seattle-based Wongdoody has introduced a Women in Advertising Scholarship, a fund that will award $5,000 tuition twice each year to women pursuing creative careers in advertising. The scholarship will
be awarded once in the summer and once in the winter, to women who are currently enrolled in undergraduate or portfolio school.
The scholarship aims to "empower promising candidates to
further their education as they work toward an advertising career."
Of the scholarship, Wongdoody Executive Creative Director Pam Fujimoto said: “Women are a huge part of
Wongdoody's culture and success, and we’ve always worked to bring diversity to our creative process because it brings a wider, more relevant range of thinking. But we know our industry as a
whole has room for improvement. This scholarship is meant to help promising female creatives move closer to a career, to help bring a bit more balance to advertising.”
to female representation within Wongdoody, 54% of the staff are female and women comprise 43% of the executive team and 35% of the creative team.
Wongdoody is accepting applications for
the Women in Advertising scholarship now through June 15. You can find out more information and apply here
