The American Advertising Federation (AAF) represents over 40,000 professionals from around the country joined together to accomplish one common purpose – to promote, protect and defend advertising interests. We are the unifying voice of advertising.
Education has been a core initiative of the AAF – 4th District since its founding in 1924. The 4th District is comprised of 18 Advertising Federations, four Ad 2 chapters and 14 student chapters throughout Florida and the Caribbean.
AAF – 4th District is committed to maintaining a high level of support to college chapters, National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) teams, and students in general. The District commits considerable financial resources each year to further enhance our educational programming and our support of students preparing to enter the varied fields of advertising. We encourage students through scholarships, internships and networking opportunities, and we work to prepare them to be the future leaders and stewards of the advertising industry.
The AAF – 4th District is pleased to offer the following 2012 scholarships for students currently in an advertising related field in Florida and the Caribbean.
