Mission Statement

The Maura Rose Kampa Scholarship seeks to provide mentorship and financial assistance to talented undergraduate students of design, advertising, illustration, and photography.

About the Scholarship Fund

The scholarship fund was started through AIGA Austin in 2015 to honor the spirit of Maura Rose Kampa, a bright young artist and design student and the daughter of David and Marcellina Kampa, active members of the Austin design and advertising community.


Our objective is to annually recognize one design, advertising, photography, or illustration college student who showcases great craft, strong leadership, and an audacity and commitment to a future as a creative career professional.


All applicants must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Undergraduate student of design, advertising, illustration, or photography
  • Have one full semester of study remaining
  • Show financial need
  • Be a member of either AIGA and/or Ad Fed


One student will be awarded a one-time gift of $1,500 toward tuition or other college expenses. The student will also receive a mentorship with award-winning creative director David Kampa of McGarrah Jessee.


Applications for 2018 are now closed. Applications for 2019 will open in the spring..
