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 communities.


One student will be awarded a one-time gift of $2,000 toward tuition or other college expenses. The student will also receive a mentorship with Creative Director of Design Craig Crutchfield from McGarrah Jessee. Two runners-up will each be awarded $150 VISA gift cards.


Our objective is to annually recognize one design, advertising, photography, or illustration college student who showcases great craft, financial need, 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 in Central Texas
  • Have one full semester of study remaining
  • Show financial need
  • Be a member of either AIGA and/or Ad Fed


Applications are currently OPEN! Apply here through Friday, May 19th.
