Dream Local Digital is excited to announce the recipient of its first marketing and communications scholarship totaling $1,500.
The Dream Local Digital Scholarship Committee chose Britney Anderson of Nantucket, Massachusetts, for her outstanding academic performance and aspirations in the field of design; one of the many new media fields the scholarship seeks to support. Anderson will attend Parsons School of Design in New York City as an undeclared major in fall 2019. In addition to the financial award, Anderson is entered into Dream Local’s internship program where she will work with our experienced team to gain hands-on experience and build her resume, portfolio and skillsets.
“I am so grateful to have been the recipient of the Dream Local scholarship,” says Anderson. “This scholarship is taking me one step closer to accomplishing my dreams by helping me fund my educational experience at Parsons School of Design. I desire to pursue careers in many fields of design and use creativity to spark positive change around the world. I have dreamt of attending this school for as long as I can remember and now it will become my reality with the help of the Dream Local. Thank you for believing in my dream!”
“This scholarship and internship were established to recognize an outstanding student pursuing a degree in marketing, communications, design, new media or related field,” says Founder and Client Success Officer Shannon Kinney. “Britney was chosen by a committee of select business and marketing professionals who felt her achievements, essay, and goals best met those the scholarship was created to serve. We wish her a productive and successful academic year!”
As one of the earliest agencies to focus on digital marketing, Dream Local Digital hopes that this scholarship will empower young people to continue to innovate in the industry. The scholarship is open once again.
