Inclusion In Digital Marketing Scholarship

Inclusion In Digital Marketing Scholarship

Intuitive Digital is launching our Inclusion In Digital Marketing Scholarship

We’ll be awarding $1,000 to an individual who is pursuing a college degree in the marketing field, including but not limited to, those interested in studying web development or design, communications, UX, PPC, SEO, and marketing-related STEM fields.

Why a Digital Marketing Scholarship?

We know that Portland, OR is one of the whitest cities in America. The tech and startup community is unfortunately no different. Despite that massive shortcoming, there’s a lot to love about both! Our city offers: four beautiful seasons, breweries, vineyards and distilleries for days and all the outdoor sports you can name. We have a lively arts culture and music scene, farmer’s markets of legend, and a community with meetup groups for just about anything you’re into. 

As a member of the tech and startup community, Intuitive Digital is committed to encouraging Inclusion & Diversity in the city and the industry; this scholarship is one way we are walking our talk towards that commitment. 

In addition to the city you can experience an award-winning tech startup that prioritizes creating a work-life balance for its employees, invests time and resources into volunteer work and community building, and likes to bond together over a glass of beer (or a mocktail, you do you). 

Are you an individual or agency in the digital marketing world who wants to help us address this issue? You can contribute to the scholarship too! Reach out to our brand manager alysha@intuitivedigital.com.
