The Helen Lansdowne Resor (HLR) Scholarship is an international opportunity that aims to amplify historically marginalized voices in the creative industry. It provides female and non-binary college students the opportunities and support they need to successfully join the advertising industry’s creative ranks.
Helen Lansdowne Resor, the industry and Wunderman Thompson’s first female copywriter, was an unparalleled creative force during her time. Now, we’re turning to the next generation looking to take their creative bravery to the next level.
Now in its fifth year, the global scholarship, established with the 4A’s Foundation, will award four recipients up to $10,000 towards their creative journey, plus a paid internship at a Wunderman Thompson office in their respective region, a mentor from Wunderman Thompson and a “first look” placement consideration upon graduation. Applications open on November 15, 2021, and close on January 7, 2022, with winners announced in March 2022.
