Students Receive Advertising Scholarships

 

Melissa Antunes ’01 and Jessica Cox ’01 from the Roy H. Park School of Communications have received Advertising Women of New York Scholarship Awards. Given each year by the Advertising Women of New York Foundation, the scholarships are awarded to senior students who are majoring in advertising or who have expressed a strong career interest in advertising and are majoring in a related field.

Antunes and Cox are both majoring in television-radio with a concentration in advertising and public relations. Antunes spent a semester at the Park School’s communications program in Los Angeles in the fall of 1999. Cox attended the College’s London Center during that same time.

"Both of these individuals are excellent recipients, and I know they will continue to excel in their courses of study," said Thomas Bohn, dean of the Park School. "This represents the eighth consecutive year that we have received a scholarship from the Advertising Women of New York Foundation, and I am delighted with that organization’s continued confidence in our program and our students."

Advertising Women of New York was founded in 1912 as the first women’s association in the communications industry. The organization now consists of more than 1,100 members representing the advertising, marketing, media, promotion, and public relations fields. The organization seeks to serve as a catalyst for the advancement of women in the communications field and to promote and support philanthropic endeavors through the Advertising Women of New York Foundation.
