Apply for this scholarship!

Ecommerce Platforms is looking for scholarship applicants to write a 500-word essay on the following:

  • How can great marketing impact the world?
  • What have you done to showcase your passion for building and marketing new products, whether it be through a past internship or working on a new online business in your garage?
  • Can you talk about a new product or business idea that could fare well in the ecommerce world?
  • What about this new idea is going to benefit potential customers and make their lives easier?

If you're more into the technology science area, feel free to talk about your aspirations as an ecommerce developer or designer. Are you currently working on an idea that could potentially improve the way ecommerce professionals work on a daily basis?

Please submit your essay to Ecommerce Platforms, and after all responses are reviewed, the winner will receive a $2,000 check to be spent on tuition fees and supplies for school.

The whole point of the scholarship is to understand what types of ideas students have in terms of marketing or ecommerce development. Get as descriptive as possible, even if you haven't necessarily made a prototype for your product or constructed a wireframe for your ecommerce store. Whether it's an interesting technique for ecommerce marketing or a cool new form of hiking boots, share how you plan to make it happen. Feel free to include everything from diagrams to sketches. You can also simply decide to write an essay describing your experiences and ideas. Designs are excellent to see, but you're not required to submit them if you're not comfortable with that.

For more information and directions on how you can apply, visit the ECommerce Platforms website.

The application deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017.
