This program includes a four-day industry immersion trip to New York and opens the door to mentoring and internships with places such as 72andSunny, BBDO, Dentsu, Meta, FCB, IPG, McCann, Omnicom Group, UM Worldwide, The Trade Desk, and Wieden+Kennedy.

Each year, students of racial or ethnic diversity from all over the country apply for the program. This year, for the first time, two USF students were admitted. Jacqueline Cimino '23, an advertising major who is double minoring in African American studies and business, said, "I’m just thrilled and so proud. This has been a goal of mine since my freshman year. I would love to work in a fast-paced agency so this recognition will definitely help me accomplish that goal."

Megan Fabriquer '23, a marketing major who is double minoring in advertising and sociology, said, "I'm very excited to participate in this program that supports students of color in the advertising industry. It's programs like this that are making advertising a more diverse and inclusive field, and I'm grateful to be a part of it. I'm looking forward to representing USF and meeting the rest of my class in NYC!"
