Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN) has announced the launch of the Dentsu Aegis Network Bursary Scheme for the 2020 academic year. In line with the network agency’s commitment to skills development and further education, bursaries will be awarded to previously disadvantage South African students who have met the application requirements and been accepted to the scheme.
South African learners from either Cape Town or Johannesburg who are in their second year and upwards, with excellent academic results, outstanding written and verbal communication skills, a burning passion for their field of study and unstoppable ambition and diligence, are invited to apply.
The shortage of skills in the media space, in both print and digital, is a strong focus for DAN, which is proud to be pioneering and assisting in strengthening media education on this front.
Koo Govender CEO of Denstu Aegis Network South Africa, says, ‘At DAN, we are passionate about uplifting individuals and assisting in making a meaningful impact within our industry. The bursary scheme gives students the encouragement and opportunity to study towards a qualification that will enable them to work in the media, marketing and advertising industry. We will assist in building a talent pipeline through addressing the shortage of skills currently being experienced in our industry. We wish all the applicants the best of luck.’
The fields of study DAN will be considering are accredited higher-education degrees and diplomas in the following areas: media/marketing studies, including digital marketing, journalism, multimedia, graphic design and web design; computer science; finance; human resources; brand communications; data sciences; art direction; copywriting; and strategy.
