Marketing Scholarship for University Students


I’m now accepting submissions for the 2016 Marketing Scholarship contest

“What is the scholarship?”

This scholarship is a $500 scholarship open to both high school seniors who are looking to enter college at the start of the next school year, as well as students currently enrolled in a college or university.

The scholarship is for a student currently enrolled (or planning to be enrolled in) a program or course related to marketing: Business, Marketing, Journalism, or Public Relations.

“What’s included in the scholarship?”

If selected, you’ll receive a $500 cash stipend. You can use this however you’d like in the pursuit of your education.

“Why did you create this scholarship?”

While in college, I received a number of scholarships that helped me focus on pursuing my education. In turn, I created this scholarship to provide a resource and path for current students to further their study — either as part of the classroom or independently.

“How do I apply?”

The following information will be useful in writing your essay and preparing your application:
