At GetGamesGo.com, we’re gamers who love all things related to gaming. But that’s not all we are. We’re also a successful website that’s aware we have a young audience, and we want to give back to our community, which is why we’re proud to announce our student scholarship program, The Get Games Go Young Marketer’s Scholarship.
About the Scholarship
The goal of The Get Games Go Young Marketer’s Scholarship is to reward young marketing talent. We believe education is important, which is why we’re awarding one $750 scholarship to a student who is currently pursuing their education, and who has a passion for marketing.
Marketing—especially web marketing—is an important part of today’s economy, and it’s an industry that will only grow in the future. With our scholarship, we want to encourage young marketers to pursue both their dreams and their education.
Who we’re looking for
We’re looking for a student who has a strong interest in marketing. We’re not so much interested in current field of study as we are their level of interest in marketing. The reason for this is that many of today’s marketers didn’t study marketing in college, and at Get Games Go, we know that as a group, marketers are made up of people who come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. We want to reward the best young marketer, period, which is why all students who meet the eligibility criteria are welcome to apply.
At Get Games Go, we believe in making a positive impact in both our online and IRL (in real life) communities. For this reason, we are searching for a young marketer who makes a positive impact in his or her community. We’re also searching for a young marketer who has integrity and leadership skills, because these are traits we admire, and we think they should be rewarded.
The Get Games Go Young Marketer’s Scholarship is open to any high school, vocational school, college or university student anywhere in the world who is or will be at least 18 years of age by the scholarship deadline.
Our scholarship is open to all young marketers who meet our criteria, regardless of their area of study or branch of expertise. Because our scholarship aims to help out with education costs, we do require that applicants have a current GPA of at least 2.5 at the date of their entry.
The Get Games Go Young Marketer’s Scholarship is 100% free to enter. We will never charge an entry fee.
Students who meet our criteria can apply for The Get Games Go Young Marketer’s Scholarship by submitting the following via email to [email protected] with “Young Marketer Submission” in the subject line:
- Creative content: A well-written essay, article or infographic (750 to 1000 words) on any topic related to our website. Two good examples of a content related to our website: best gaming chair and best gaming desk.
- Personal essay: A written piece about your reason for applying for our scholarship, your interest in marketing, your leadership skills, and how you make a positive impact in your community (500 words or less)
- Your resume or CV
- Proof that you’re a current student at any of the aforementioned eligible institutions (i.e. a copy of a student ID card)
How the winner is selected
This is purely a merit-based scholarship. Applicants are judged solely on the freshness, creativity, and uniqueness of their creative content (essay, article or infographic), as well as their personal essay describing their interest in marketing, leadership skills and community impact.
We want to award our scholarship to a standout young marketer who meets and exceeds our expectations.
The Get Games Go Young Marketer’s Scholarship deadline is 11pm EST on March 20, 2018. Any applications sent after that date and time will be disregarded.
For 2018, we received an extremely low number of applications and unfortunately none of them quite met the standard outlined in our application parameters. We will be reconsidering running further scholarships in the future.
