American Advertising Federation Tucson
Spring 2022 Student Internship Program
American Advertising Federation Tucson (AAF Tucson) and the Tucson Advertising Federation Education Foundation (TAFEF) continue to be strong supporters of advertising education. Currently, in Southern Arizona, Pima Community College, University of Arizona, Grand Canyon College, University of Phoenix, and Catholic Universities each have Marketing, Advertising, and/or Illustration & Design programs that AAF Tucson with TAFEF has endowed a scholarship fund to help support those students.
These paid internships will consist of a minimum of 10 hours per week for a sixteen-week semester with a local company member of AAF Tucson, and be paid a minimum of $16/hour. The recipients will be acknowledged during the annual AAF Tucson American Advertising Awards held in Spring 2022.
The AAFT NextGen Council & Scholarship Committee plans and supervises the educational work of AAF Tucson. The President and Board of Directors work to ensure that AAF Tucson’s education initiatives are conducted with the best possible results. Students may apply at the suggestion of their student advisor or at their own direction. Through an application and interview process, the student will be matched with an appropriate company.
