Have a look at what our previous Engagement (Marketing and Communications) Industry Scholar has been working on!
During this semester I am going to be working on a number of projects with the aim of improving the way information is communicated to various demographics. I am also going to be working on an idea called “Fresh Faced Friday” which aims to promote Body Image and Eating Disorders Awareness Week. This idea was developed prior to my scholarship, and that’s the best bit! If you have a good idea that you want to work on, this scholarship gives you all the tools that you need to make it happen. While this is my major project I am also going to be doing a stack of other things, including working on the emails that we send to our students and writing for an array of audiences. Overall this scholarship provides anything and everything you will need to get an idea off the ground.
