Creative Future Scholarship - receive a full scholarship to kickstart your career in creative communications!
The Loeries initiated the Creative Future Scholarship in 2008 to encourage and enable creativity at grassroots level, by assisting learners from a disadvantaged background to study brand communication at a tertiary institution. Last year, the scholarship was awarded to Khanyisa Rosemary Mabasa from Allen Glen High and Keamohetsoe Tsima from Pro Arte Alphen Park. Khanyisa will be studying at AAA School of Advertising Johannesburg while Keamohetsoe will be attending Vega School, Johannesburg.
The Creative Future Scholarship covers just about everything - fees, study materials, accommodation and living expenses. Plus it offers mentorship, internship and employment in the communications industry. Unlike other education funds, this programme goes to high schools across the country, builds awareness and seeks out talented individuals. Through this process, learners who would otherwise be unaware of the opportunities available, are brought into the creative industry.
