Digital marketing agency Wpromote has launched the Wpromote Digital Marketing Scholarship which aims to promote student interest in the digital marketing field.
The Scholarship totals $3,000 -- what tiny percentage of college tuition that covers is kind of a chuckle -- and will be awarded bi-annually beginning in December 2016. First-place winners will take home $1,500, while second and third runners-up will receive $1,000 and $500, respectively. The initiative is designed to create interest in digital marketing among students in high school, undergraduate school and graduate school, and students of all majors and academic disciplines are encouraged to apply.
Of the scholarship, Wpromote CEO Mike Mothner said, "Over the last 15 years, Wpromote has become an integral part of the local community, and each of our offices -- whether in Los Angeles, Dallas or Chicago -- maintains strong community ties. Our firm is dedicated to advancing the field of digital marketing for everyone. The Scholarship, alongside our existing efforts through Wpromote University, brings us closer to that goal."
Entrants will be asked to write a blog post on any topic of their choice within the field of digital marketing. All entries will be judged on originality and creativity, with additional consideration applied to factors such as student GPA, industry relevance, and overall professionalism. The three winning entries will be published on Wpromote's digital marketing blog.
Applicants must submit their entry through an online submission form. Entries will be accepted from September 19th, 2016 through November 14th, 2016. Winners will be announced on December 5th, 2016.
