Scholarships for Advertising Majors

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for advertising, promotion and marketing managers is on the rise. But before you can take advantage of the growing job market, you need to finish your advertising degree. And that means paying for college. A variety of scholarships for advertising majors are available, and you may be eligible for one or more of them. Some scholarships are funded by specialized nonprofits, such as Marketing EDGE and the Electronic Document Scholarship Foundation, while others are provided by individual universities, such as the University of Texas and Michigan State University. Potential recipients may be required to submit a portfolio of their work, provide official transcripts or demonstrate an active interest in advertising that extends beyond the classroom. If you’d like to learn more about scholarships for advertising majors, keep reading below.
