Ad Standards Scholarship
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, our 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.
Our 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.
Ad Standards accepts only one application from each school per year. To apply, send this form and our contact information to the program chair or coordinator at your institution and inquire whether they can assist you with your application.
Deadline for institutions to submit one application on behalf of a student: February 28, 2019.
Scholarship recipients will be notified prior to May 1, 2019.
