SAS Scholarships for New Design Talent


Award winning design and communications agency SAS (part of MSLGROUP) are launching a £10,000 scholarship programme at Chelsea College of Art and Design, to recognise creative excellence and nurture emerging talent.

The company has created three scholarships totalling £10,000 for students on Chelsea’s BA Graphic Design Communication course. The scholarships will be open to all second year BA Graphic Design Communication students.

Students that wish to apply will be asked to complete a live project in their second year with three winning students being chosen to receive a Scholarship for the final year of their undergraduate degree.

Geoff Thomas Shaw, Chelsea’s Undergraduate Programme Director, hopes that this collaboration with SAS ..

“ensures our new, young designers are more financially confident and feel valued as the next generation of professional practitioners”

David Stocks, Executive Creative Director at SAS said:

“It’s tough for students with the cost of study rising all the time. We believe there is a responsibility on agencies to support and nurture young talent and not just use new graduates as lowly paid interns. The great reputation for creativity that we have in this country will only continue with the support of our industry”.
