Helen Lansdowne Resor Scholarship


The HLR Scholarship is an international opportunity that addresses the lack of female creative leadership in the ad industry by providing female college students with the support they need and enabling them to join advertising’s creative ranks. Named after Helen Lansdowne Resor, the industry’s and J. Walter Thompson’s first female copywriter, the scholarship was established in partnership with the 4A’s Foundation in 2014. Historically, each year, it has awarded five individuals’ scholarships up to $10,000. Additionally, each recipient is offered a paid summer internship with a JWT office in her respective region, a JWT mentor, and a “first look” placement consideration upon graduation. Applications must be submitted by June 3. The scholarship is open to any undergraduate, graduate, or portfolio student from any school globally.
