AUS stu­dent wins JWT schol­ar­ship

Campaign Middle East - - NEWS -

A UAE-based creative stu­dent has been awarded the J. Wal­ter Thomp­son He­len Lans­downe Re­sor Schol­ar­ship, an in­ter­na­tional award.

Tas­neem Kara­mal­lah, a com­mu­ni­ca­tions stu­dent at the Amer­i­can Uni­ver­sity of Shar­jah, was one of five fe­male stu­dents to be cho­sen for the $10,000 aca­demic prize. She will also in­tern with the agency.

The schol­ar­ship is named af­ter JWT’s first fe­male copy­writer, who paved the way for women in the ad­ver­tis­ing in­dus­try. In light of her pi­o­neer­ing work, the award aims to pro­vide sup­port and men­tor­ship to young women who as­pire to join the creative ranks.

Along­side the fund­ing, Kara­mal­lah will also gain a three-month in­tern­ship at JWT’s re­gional of­fice.

This is the sec­ond year in a row that a stu­dent from AUS has been se­lected for the prize. The re­cip­i­ent last year was Rawan Obaid, a mul­ti­me­dia de­sign stu­dent.
