Essay Question Preview

Before you continue, we'd like to give you a preview of the essay questions in case you'd like to write them out ahead of time and come back later. To skip this step, please hit Continue.

1. If awarded the Maura Rose Kampa Scholarship, you will be mentored by David Kampa. What would you hope to glean from that experience?

2. Tell us about another mentoring experience you’ve had and what impact that experience had on you.

3. For many of the best creatives around the world, their profession is more than a job. It’s a passion, a commitment—an obsession, even. It's a feeling inside that drives you to do more, do better, and try harder. Is there something about being creative that makes you feel this way? What else do you have these feelings about?

4. Describe a time when you turned failure into success. Made lemonade out of lemons. A time when you made something better, simply because you did not give up and put in the extra effort to make it right.

5. Audacity is the willingness to take bold risks. Tell us a story about how you’ve shown grit, bravery, or courage in your decisions as a creative on a project and what outcomes were yielded by your audacious approach.

6. There are far more creative graduates than there are jobs. What will set you apart from the crowd? What aspect of your upbringing, personality, or creative abilities will make you a good hire?

7. What would it mean to you to have a successful career in your profession? What motivates you to put in the extra effort to achieve that success?
