Ad Standards Scholarship

About this Award: 

Each year, Ad Standards offers two $1500 scholarships for post-secondary students. To apply, students must be enrolled in an undergraduate advertising or marketing program at a Canadian university or college.

 

One scholarship is open to students attending a primarily English post-secondary institution and one is open to students attending a primarily French post-secondary institution. Successful applicants display a record of academic excellence, a commitment to volunteerism, and a genuine interest in pursuing a career in advertising or marketing.

 

The Ad Standards Scholarship honors Robert E. Oliver, the organization’s first president and a pioneer of Canadian advertising self-regulation. He played a key role in developing the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards, sat on various charity boards, and was an accomplished student and public educator.

 

Ad Standard's focus on volunteer work recognizes a variety of roles and initiatives. Any volunteer work undertaken in the previous five years can be included in the application.
