The Miami Ad School has announced that the scholarship programme introduced in 2011 to promote creativity in the marketing communications industry in Nigeria will now be known as Adebola Babatunde Scholarship for Miami Ad School. This is in honour and recognition of the remarkable impact made by the late Adebola Babatunde while he was a student at the school in Germany.
According to Niklas Frings-Rupp, Managing Director, Miami Ad School Europe “Babatunde Adebola was not only ambitious but someone who saw no obstacles. He was not only a gifted writer and thinker but was passionate, thoughtful and dedicated to whatever he did. We feel honoured that this scholarship is being named after this outstanding creative that left us way too early.”
It was gathered from reliable source that “the idea to name the scholarship after Adebola Babatude started with some of his colleagues in Germany and all of us quickly agreed that this was the right thing to do. At least in our own little way, we could immortalize the hope that he represented to the youth of our industry.”
The Adebola Babatunde Scholarship for Miami Ad School is a two-year tuition scholarship for Nigerian creatives to study for a portfolio certificate course in Copywriting, Ad Direction, Digital Design, Photography and Video at Miami Ad School locations of their choice in Europe and the USA. Entries for 2016 scholarship will open on November 16, 2015 with new categories of scholarship for Bachelors and Masters programmes offered by Miami Ad School Europe in conjunction with Steinbeis University.
