Calling all students and parents!
The AMA Baltimore is proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for its 2012 Undergraduate Marketing Education Scholarships, which will be awarded to three exceptional undergraduate students in marketing or a marketing-related degree program in Spring 2012.
For this year’s competition, we are pleased to offer a first place prize of $2,500 and two $500 Book Scholarships for runner-up winners. We would appreciate it if you would announce the availability of these scholarship offerings in classes with students who will be juniors and seniors as of September 2011 (sophomores and juniors at present) and are pursuing a marketing or marketing-related major.
Sophomores and juniors with a 3.0 GPA, who are pursuing a career in marketing, have had multiple marketing courses, internship experiences and leadership are encouraged to apply for these Baltimore American Marketing Association scholarship awards. Winners are presented with the awards in front of 50 marketing executives at the Annual AMA Awards Banquet next June!
The deadline for application is March 1, 2012.
These merit scholarships seek to contribute to the educational development of motivated students in the general field of marketing. Selection will be based on an application containing questions on work experience, extra-curricular activities and aspirations toward a career in marketing. Since these are merit scholarships, as opposed to being based on financial need, students with a 3.0 GPA (B average) or better have the best chance of being selected as the recipients. For all finalists, the application process may include an interview with the scholarship selection committee.
The applicant must be a full-time student attending a 4-year College or University in Maryland, with credits equivalent to the status of junior or senior as of September 2011. You may provide eligible applicants with copies of the attached application or forward them this e-mail. Applications may be submitted electronically; however, we do need hard copies of transcripts. The $2,500 first place award and two $500 book scholarship runner-up awards will be disbursed through the Financial Aid Offices of the recipients’ schools, to be used for payment toward tuition, books or other school supplies during the 2012-2013 school year.
The Baltimore Chapter of the AMA has developed these scholarship offerings to contribute to higher education in the region. We believe that this is a quality opportunity for marketing students to become familiar with the American Marketing Association and its resources – at both the national and local level.
