Diversity Grant Application

AAF Tuscaloosa is currently seeking both nominations and applications for its Diversity Membership Grant.  The intent of this grant is to help introduce minority members of the advertising community to the benefits of membership, which include national AAF membership, networking, professional development, and more!  AAF Tuscaloosa will award up to three grants for the 2017-2018 membership year (July 1-June 30).

Each three-year grant will cover 100% of AAFT membership dues (currently $190) in year one, 60% of dues in year two, and 30% of dues in year three.  Dues cover the cost of meals at monthly lunch meetings, AAF District 7 Dues, and national AAF individual membership dues.   Recipients will be eligible for all AAFT membership benefits.

Criteria for the award are that recipients’ race must be under represented in the club, he/she must be employed full-time in an advertising-related job or field (one that buys, sells, creates, or oversees advertising), and not currently an AAFT member.  The priority application deadline is November 10, but applications will be accepted until all available grants are awarded.  To apply/nominate, click here to download an application form, and submit as indicated on the application.
