PrestigeLinks Digital Marketing Scholarship

Scholarship Programme for U.S. College Students

Introducing the PrestigeLinks Digital Marketing Scholarship

This year, we are proud to continue the PrestigeLinks Digital Marketing Scholarship (PDMS) for students studying at approved academic institutions in the United States.

Digital Marketing is a fast-paced, increasingly technical field that's rapidly changing. Understanding how it works is deeply important for understanding modern American businesses, as well as maximizing career impact in the not-for-profit sphere.

It is also a field where diversity and inclusion is uniquely important, and understanding the intersection of inclusivity with marketing in the online arena is crucial to promote effective initiatives in the future.
