To apply, students must carry a 3.0 GPA and an interest in online media to be eligible for the grant, dubbed the DoubleClick/AAF Future New Media Leader Grant. Applications require students to create an online marketing plan for a fictional package-goods company and develop at least one piece of creative output by September 1997. Grant recipients will be named in March 1998. The AAF has 215 college chapters as well as professional-level advertising associations in cities across the country.
