"I was awarded the TFB Scholarship during my final semester of college. This was an extremely important time for me as I was deciding my next steps in my career by networking with professionals, becoming involved with young professional organizations in the city, and participating in career fairs and workshops. The scholarship allowed me the opportunity to become a member of the VCU Ad Club which included a trip to NYC for a huge advertising conference. Along with that, the scholarship gives me the ability to attend local workshops at places like the Broad and other events in the city. This scholarship allowed me to be more involved in my community by taking the next steps for my career."
-Courtney Foster, 2019 Scholarship recipient.
ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP
Open to undergraduate students in The Robertson School of Media & Culture (Journalism, PR, and Advertising) at VCU, recipients of the Tiramisu For Breakfast scholarship will receive funds to go toward conferences, professional organizations dues, and networking events. I want students to have the same opportunities I’ve had to be involved in the Richmond community.
HOW TO APPLY
Tiramisu for Breakfast Scholarship will provide financial support to undergraduate students who are rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors in the Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture majoring in public relations, advertising, and/or journalism. The Tiramisu for Breakfast Scholarship shall provide support for student professional development opportunities such as attendance at networking events or to gain membership in professional organizations. The scholarship may cover registration fees, related meals, and travel as funds permit. More than one student may receive this financial award. The committee may consider additional professional development opportunities. Preference shall go to students in good academic standing who have financial need.
