VOLPA LAUNCHES BID TO FIND MARKETING SCHOLARSHIP STUDENTS

Volpa, one of Scotland’s top independent marketing agencies, has launched its bid to find two students wishing to benefit from exclusive scholarships the award winning agency is offering through Perth College, part of the University of the Highlands and Islands.

The scholarships, designed to help students who are committed to their studies and are keen to develop their skills to reach their full potential, are funded by Perth College Development Trust. Donations are made by entrepreneurial businesses and individuals willing to invest in Scotland’s talent and economic future.

Volpa, which celebrates 15 years in the business this month, is offering two scholarships through Perth College UHI. The Volpa Creative Design Scholarship is open to any student studying HND or BA (Hons) Visual Design and Communications. Volpa’s Digital Marketing Scholarship is open to any student studying HND Business, which includes marketing within the course. Each student will be offered £500, to be spent in any way which supports their studies. The scholarships also include 40 hours of invaluable work experience or contact time at the agency.

Based in Perth but with a Scotland wide reach, Volpa is a full service marketing agency boasting dedicated publicity, creative and digital departments. Specialists in the tourism, hospitality and food and drink sectors, Volpa has experienced incredible success since it was founded by Managing Director Tricia Fox in 2002. It has received a raft of awards over the years, including three times winner of the Scottish Event Award for Best Marketing Strategy.

Tricia Fox, Managing Director of Volpa, commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to be able to offer these scholarships through Perth College UHI, which reflect our desire to see great talent at grassroots level flourish.  Two students will be given financial support and 40 hours of priceless contact time with our incredibly talented, hard-working and experienced team. I have no doubt that what they learn in their time with us will be the building blocks to the start of a very successful career. The experience they gain will give them a significant head start when applying for jobs in the industry.”

Principal and Chief Executive of Perth College UHI, Dr Margaret Cook, said: “Our Scholarships are designed to help students who are committed to their studies and are keen to develop their skills to reach their full potential. We appreciate Volpa’s valuable contribution to our programme as part of a collection of entrepreneurial businesses and individuals who are willing to invest in Scotland’s talent and economic future. They are a great way to help students to engage with industry and gain added employability skills.”

Students can apply for either Volpa scholarship until the closing date of 10th October. Interviews will take place on 10th November. The scholarship period will last until May 2018. Students interested in applying are asked to contact course tutors, Christiana Margiotti for the Volpa Creative Design Scholarship and Scott Innes for the Volpa Digital Marketing Scholarship.
