Sarai Wingate Wins WONGDOODY's Women in Advertising Scholarship

Sarai Wingate Wins WONGDOODY's Women in Advertising Scholarship

We’re very excited to announce the Women in Advertising Scholarship’s newest winner, Sarai Wingate. She currently attends the Miami Ad School Portfolio Center pursuing her passion for graphic design while bringing light to social issues.

“We had such an impressive pool of finalists to choose from so this was really hard. We chose Sarai because she has a common thread of using design across many different media to explore challenging, deep issues that are important to her and show a different perspective” said Megan Blacksher, Senior Director, HR at WONGDOODY. “It’s the whole reason we have this scholarship - to help bring more diverse points of view to the industry. Sarai is a great example.”

WONGDOODY established the Women in Advertising Scholarship in 2015 to promote increased female creative leadership in the advertising industry. The $5000 award is given out twice a year, once in summer and once in winter.

All eligible applicants must be:
- Female
- Currently enrolled in a U.S. college, and have completed at least the sophomore year of undergraduate studies or the first year of portfolio school.
- Maintaining satisfactory academic progress as determined by her school
- Pursuing a creative role in the advertising industry (e.g., copywriter, art director, designer, etc.)
