Barbara Fultz Women in Advertising Scholarship

The Barbara Fultz Women In Advertising Scholarship was founded in 2014 by Elevation and the Richmond Ad Club to honor the career and contributions of Barbara Fultz, longtime owner of Fultz + Associates and former Advertising Person Of The Year who was a pioneer for women in the Richmond advertising community. The $2,500 scholarship is awarded annually to one undergraduate woman who plans a career in advertising, either in creative, account management or production. It is presented at the Richmond Ad Club’s annual awards celebration, The Richmond Show.

The Barbara Fultz Women in Advertising Scholarship is open to women who have declared their major in the Virginia Commonwealth University Robertson School of Media and Culture Advertising Sequence (whether Strategic or Creative) and who are rising seniors and who have a grade point average of at least 3.2.

Applications will be accepted from January 1, 2018 – February 15, 2018.
