This is the second consecutive year that a University of Scranton student was awarded a Stickell Internship.

The Stickell Internship program was established in 1989 to honor the late Vance L. Stickell, former executive vice president, marketing, for the Los Angeles Times. The program is intended to raise awareness and understanding of advertising processes and business ethics among future advertising professionals. The interns receive a stipend in addition to either a scholarship or assistance with housing.
