Baltimore Advertising Chic Davis Scholarship
Thursday, October 10th, 2013 //

Samuel Apata, a sophomore animation major, won a scholarship for $1500.00 from the American Advertising Federation Baltimore Scholarship Committee, and it will be presented to Samuel at the opening night of Advertising Week on Tuesday, October 15th. The committee evaluated candidates on the basis of their academic achievements, volunteer contributions to community and representative samples of work in advertising related disciplines.

The scholarship applicants were required to write an essay and to submit an online portfolio. The committee was impressed with Samuel's submissions. It also helped that Prof. Cathy Cook wrote a favorable recommendation letter to the AAF for his application.

Samuel is also working as a Multimedia Artist at Laureate Inc. in Columbia, MD. He is interested in pursuing a career in advertising after graduation, and the AAF award is an opportunity to meet advertising professionals, as well as enhancing his resume. Congratulations, Samuel!
