IACT College launched the ImPossible Scholarship this week. Unlike any other scholarship, the ImPossible Scholarship offers potential high achievers with not only bursary discounts, but also lifestyle allowance replete with job prospects. This scholarship is truly the first of its kind!
If you’ve always been keen to participate in creative communication, the scholarship will now be a motivating factor to enthuse and encourage you to empower creativity and new possibilities, which include career opportunities.
Alicia Chew IACT College Executive Chairman says, “Since IACT College has very close ties with the industry, many big players such as Nestle, Genting and Monster Interactive have highly praised how our students are well-prepared and capable according to industry standards. With these companies’ support and expertise, this scholarship will not just empower young minds to achieve their dreams but help relieve some of their financial burdens.”
Chow Wei Heng, vice-president of Marketing for Genting Malaysia Bhd, says, “I have worked with students of IACT College on many projects. They are creatively versatile. The ImPossible Scholarship will definitely empower creativity.”
Parents and students can also be assured that there are many options to choose from, ranging from foundation, diploma through to degree.
The ImPossible Scholarship is one of the efforts of the #ProjectImPossible campaign currently running at IACT College.
It also captures the essence of IACT College in nurturing fresh talents, thus positioning the college as the brand leader in the creative communication or media education industry.
Fields of studies viable for the scholarship include Advertising, Mass Communication, Marketing, Broadcasting, Communication Studies, Creative Multimedia, Graphic Design, Public Relations, Event Management and Media Studies.
Successful applicants will receive up to 100% scholarship (waiver in tuition fees only) for stipulated tertiary programmes conducted at IACT College and guaranteed internship opportunity with a world-class company throughout their college years and simultaneously be considered for full-time employment upon graduation.
Another great feat is that part of the scholarship will be given in a form of lifestyle allowance as well to help students live a creative city lifestyle.
IACT College is the only creative communication college in Malaysia with more than three decades of teaching and professional training excellence approved and co-founded by the Malaysian Advertisers Association (MAA) and Association of Accredited Advertising Agents of Malaysia (4As).
Among the facets that make IACT College unique is the small classroom management strategically located in the commercial hub of VSQ @ PJ City Centre in Petaling Jaya, which allows students a creative infused place to study yet remain industry relevant.
Classes are mostly coursework and project-based learning, many in collaboration with companies, training students to think, perform and present in real-life professional settings.
An alumni of IACT College, Chris Chan, Consumer Marketing Manager of Nestle Malaysia, says, “IACT College is different because of its strong connection with the marketing communications industry; its students are versatile and job ready.”
