Brian Brown Scholarships
So, you just submitted an entry to the Real Show (read above — it’s a prerequisite for the scholarship). So you think you’ve done some excellent work and, guess what, if our panel of esteemed judges (from across America) agrees… then you can win some GREEN. Money! Cash! Scratch!
Based solely on the merit of students’ work, we proudly award about $2,000 in scholarships each year to talented designers whose submissions excel beyond expectations.
But take note — entry is by invitation only. Students who are eligible for the Brian Brown Scholarship are selected from entries to the Real Show… so, again… you better BRING IT.
Oh, and if you want to contribute to the Brian Brown Scholarship Fund, please contact us. All donations are tax-deductible, and all students will forever be grateful to you. As will we.
ADCMW sponsors this semi-annual event, which takes design students on a tour of three studios, and have featured some of the DC area’s prominent design firms, such as Kinetik, Greenfield/Belser Ltd,... Students will have a first-person account of the studio’s work and current design and hiring trends. They’ll also have exclusive opportunities to ask questions of the professionals who work there… questions dealing with content and creation, strategy, client relations, real-world woes, hiring, and more!
