Wongdoody will grant a $5,000 scholarship twice per year to women in advertising

Seattle and LA-based Wongdoody has announced that it is offering a new ‘Women in Advertising’ scholarship that will award $5,000 toward tuition to women pursuing creative careers in advertising.

To qualify, women must be enrolled in either undergraduate or portfolio school. It will be awarded once in the summer and once in the winter.

Pam Fujimoto, executive creative director at Wongdoody, said: “Women are a huge part of Wongdoody’s culture and success, and we’ve always worked to bring diversity to our creative process because it brings a wider, more relevant range of thinking. But we know our industry as a whole has room for improvement. This scholarship is meant to help promising female creatives move closer to a career, to help bring a bit more balance to advertising.”

Wongdoody’s staff is 54 per cent female, with women holding 43 per cent of executive positions and making up 25 per cent of its creative department

The agency is accepting applications from now until June 15. More information can be found here.

Clients of Wongdoody’s include T-Mobile, Alaska Airlines, and Microsoft.
