New scholarship for AdSchool 2011 students

New scholarship for AdSchool 2011 students

Media Design School, in collaboration with Marsden Inch, New Zealand’s leading communications recruitment company, has announced a new $5000 scholarship for the 2011 AdSchool Creative Advertising class.

Winners of the inaugural cash scholarship will be announced at the 2011 Adschool end-of-year graduation show in November. The scholarship will be awarded to a team or individual selected by Marsden Inch and AdSchool course leader Kate Humphries.

Marsden Inch’s scholarship is open to all domestic New Zealand students selected to study at Media Design School’s AdSchool. Marsden Inch creative partner Jeneal Rohrback said that students would be able to decide on how they want to spend the $5000 scholarship.

“Although the intent is for the scholarship to be used to offset any student loan, we are realistic about the fact that, after a long, grueling year of intense study – the recipient may find more ‘creative’ ways to spend their win.”

Media Design School general manager Frances Valintine said that the scholarship was a great honour for all new incoming and future AdSchool students.

“Adschool is New Zealand’s longest-established creative advertising school. We received global recognition earlier this year when we were acknowledge as the fourth best advertising school in the world by Young Guns.”
 
“No other New Zealand institution made the Young Guns list, which just shows the amazing amount of talent, innovation and creativity that our graduates have displayed to industry and the world over the years.”


Jeneal Rohrback said that Marsden Inch decided to offer the scholarship through the AdSchool because it believed in nurturing young talent.

“Marsden Inch is in the talent business, so being involved in the Adschool scholarship programme is not only a perfect fit, but it’s always good when you can give something back to the industry as well. As an occasional teacher at the AdSchool, I  know the course is grounded on great principles and has the flair to bring on some of the best New Zealand creative talent around,” she says.

Media Design School is New Zealand’s foremost private tertiary school for the digital creative industries. The Diploma of Creative Advertising at the school is an intense 40-week creative problem-solving course, which prepares students to work in the creative departments of top advertising agencies.
