There’s a saying that goes “Life is a journey, not a destination.” That is, we’re shaped by the journeys that we embark on more so than where we actually end up, with both our past and future journeys shaping the choices that we make today.
At Signal, we use marketing and technology data to help our clients’ businesses map and improve their customers’ journey, rather than just focusing on the bottom line of what they bought at a store. And as you begin your college journey, we want to hear about what in your past has led you to this path, and what you think your college journey will mean for your future.
To help facilitate your college path in technology, marketing, and/or entrepreneurship, Signal is pleased to offer two undergraduate students in these fields a scholarship prize. The winner will receive $1,500, and the runner-up will receive $500 to use towards your college education journey as you study technology, marketing, and/or entrepreneurship.
To apply for our scholarship, please write a 500+ word essay detailing the legs of your journey, so to speak. How has your life up until now prepared you for college? How do you think college will change your future path? Are there any roadblocks you’ve had to overcome, and if so, how did they affect your journey? Looking further down the line, how will college prepare you for the journey towards your desired career?
Feeling creative? Take a photo or create a slideshow that shows how your journey has shaped you- it’s not required, but these extra efforts are more likely to catch our eye when we’re choosing our scholarship winners!
Submit your essay and any accompanying image files to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Signal Scholarship Entry.” Signal’s team will choose the winners after the deadline and announce them on The Beacon blog. No payment or purchase required to entry
