Winners of the 2013 AEFH scholarships
Yes, if you’re going to a graduate school and enrolled for a minimum of nine hours. However, we can’t make checks payable to for-profit organizations like a portfolio schools.
If I’m a senior in high school and going to major in advertising in college in the upcoming year, can I apply?
No. Applicants must be entering their sophomore, junior or senior year in college or university, or will be enrolled in graduate school.
The Advertising Education Foundation of Houston (AEFH) awards scholarships to college sophomores, juniors and seniors pursuing undergraduate or post graduate degrees in advertising, communications, interactive marketing, journalism, radio/TV, commercial art, public relations or related fields. Students attending colleges and universities located in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas, the four states in which AAF-District 10 is located, are eligible to apply. Preference is given to students who indicate a desire to join the Houston communications or integrated marketing community after graduation.
The deadline for receiving all applications is February 14, 2014.
No. Each student is responsible for completing the online application along with:
- a. One (1) copy of their student unofficial transcript and
- b. A letter of reference from a school professor or work reference.
Yes. However, an official transcript will be required if you are selected for a scholarship.
A letter of reference, either from your school or workplace, must be attached to your on-line application, along with your transcript, in order for your on-line application to be processed.
We are looking for well-rounded students who participate in all levels of school, work and the community and have demonstrated an interest and an aptitude for marketing communications.
The Scholarship review committee consists of the twelve Board Members of AEFH, who are senior professional executives in advertising and related communication firms in Houston.
We plan to offer twenty (20) $2,000 scholarships in 2014.
You only need to send in one application. However, not all applicants will be eligible for all scholarships.
I heard that each scholarship has one or two runner-ups. Will I be notified if I’m one of them?
No, runners-up will only be notified if the winner declined or we find the applicant ineligible for the scholarship.
Yes, we have posted a list of last year's April 2013 scholarship winners on this website.
Yes, you’re welcomed to attend, if you simply pay the luncheon fee. The recipients’ friends and family are also invited to attend.
It depends on the agency or the scholarship donor. Unfortunately, many internship programs will be filled before the scholarship winners are notified in April.
