Marccx Media Scholarship

For Business, Law, Marketing & Entrepreneurship Students - Graduate or Undergraduate students.

We created the Marccx Media Scholarship to support business, marketing and entrepreneurship students. If you believe that perception is reality, the messages we deliver shape popular opinion. Today’s marketing students will be tomorrow’s cultural ambassadors and their mission is simple: inspire creativity and compassion at every corner. Too often the decision makers at the top are disconnected from the “real world” and so it’s important that revenue and responsibility are aligned for today’s business students and tomorrow’s captains of industry.

We’re investing in our future by investing in you. To promote business, marketing and entrepreneurial endeavors, every year Marccx Media gives one undergraduate student a $1,000.00 scholarship to support his or her studies. We must all do our part to pay it forward, and this opportunity is for you.

Deadline: December 15 each year.

For eligibility requirements, visit the scholarship page. Please direct questions to scholarships@marccx.com.

Mr. West hopes that these scholarships will reward the efforts of motivated members of the community by helping take some of the financial pressure of education off their shoulders as they work towards advancing their goals.
