Foster City, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2009
QuinStreet, Inc., the leader in vertical media and marketing online, and a California-based Company, has responded to the current state budget crisis by offering a marketing scholarship to students of the University of California at Berkeley. The scholarship is a testament to QuinStreet's belief that the need for well-trained marketing experts is essential for the continued growth of the industry.
"From an industry leading perspective, we feel it is important to support students interested in marketing careers," QuinStreet, Inc. CEO, Doug Valenti said. "Today's students will help shape our industry in the years to come. We are happy to play a part in educating the next generation of online marketers."
The University of California at Berkeley will administer the funds and evaluate candidates for the QuinStreet marketing scholarship. The university will determine whether the scholarship will benefit one student or will be shared among several worthy marketing scholars.
The donation will be made during October, 2009, to give UC Berkeley time to assess students and award funds to individuals enrolled in classes next spring. In addition to the scholarship, QuinStreet offers an extended internship program offering in-depth training and industry-related work experience to graduate level college and university students, primarily those in the process of earning an MBA.
