We have partnered with the School of Communication Arts 2.0 in Brixton to provide a local young person who wins scholarship competition, an additional £3,000 bursary toward their living costs.

Most kids who grow up in Brixton probably wouldn't ever imagine a creative industry career was for them - but the reality is, that diversity, culture and passion is a real asset in this industry. We know this at Champion, as we pay talented young creatives from all walks of life to work with us on creative briefs - and it produces innovative, edgy, ground breaking and bold results.

But ad school? The reality is, since the EMAs were cut even buying a monthly bus pass is tricky.

The School of Communication Arts 2.0 (SCA) based in St Matthews Church Brixton, are offering 3 x £12,000 annual scholarships to three lucky young applicants to their SCA Scholarship Competition, and we'd like one of them to be won by a young person from Brixton.

In order to encourage applications from the local area, we're offering up to an additional £3k to go toward that young person's living costs.

What we'll deliver:

  • We will donate up to £3,000 to a local Brixton based SCA scholarship winner for the academic year 2013/14.

Why it's a great idea:

We feel that it’s important to support local creative talent, and are keen to promote creative industry careers to local people who may not have seriously considered a career in advertising before. We want to show that an academic background isn’t necessarily relevant – and that it’s the ability to demonstrate problem solving and lateral thinking that is what’s important.

"This scholarship is a chance for the next generation of creative talent to come forward. It’s a brilliant opportunity to learn from the best in the creative business and show us all just how the inspiring diversity of Brixton can create new problem solving answers. If you think differently and are aged over 18, you have to enter, as this environment supports, nurtures and develops that difference."

Scott Leonard, founder and Creative Director of Champion.

Steps to get it done:

  • We're promoting this opportunity via local media, blogs, twitter and facebook.

If you want to donate some funds to our bursary we'd be really grateful!

Equally if you have a passion for Brixton you can purchase a 'Great Brixton' t-shirt in Brixton Village at these following stockists:

Having already raised £1,500 from the sale of 'Great Brixton' t-shirts, we're looking for the final £1,500 to make up the total bursary of £3,000.
