The Brandcenter has several scholarships ranging from $500 to $10,000. These opportunities are available to qualified students who possess outstanding promise in their chosen career track.
Some of the scholarships are endowed by foundations established to honor highly respected individuals in the advertising industry, some are funded by Brandcenter faculty and staff, and others are funded through industry-related nonprofit organizations.
The VCU Brandcenter Excellence Scholarship
In celebration of its 20th Anniversary, the VCU Brandcenter will award $5,000 scholarships to ten outstanding candidates, one in each of our five tracks of study (art direction, copywriting, creative brand management, experience design, and strategy), to be awarded over the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters ($2,500 each semester).
All VCU Brandcenter applicants are eligible to apply for the Brandcenter Excellence Scholarship as long as they submit both the VCU Brandcenter application and the scholarship application by 5pm EST on May 15th, 2017. (No exceptions.)
