CHICAGO (PRWEB) September 04, 2018
G2 Crowd, the world’s leading marketplace for business software and services, today announces the launch of a new scholarship program for aspiring entrepreneurs. The scholarship will help the next generation of entrepreneurs offset the costs of a higher education so they can focus on their ideas for the future.
“If it weren’t for having such a strong entrepreneurial spirit, we wouldn’t be where we are today,” said Godard Abel, co-founder and chief executive officer, G2 Crowd. “Since the beginning, we’ve been driven by a desire to build a meaningful business that can change the way the world buys software. To achieve this goal, we’ve had to take risks and build a solution that could meet the needs of today’s technology buyer. We want the recipients of this scholarship to share in our commitment to building world-class solutions that will change the way we live and work.”
The company will award three $5,000 scholarships per quarter over the next 12 months to students who exhibit the greatest entrepreneurial spirit. The recipients will be chosen by a panel of three G2 Crowd team members. Notifications will be sent to honorees within two weeks of the corresponding scholarship period end date.
To apply, students are required to submit a one-page essay explaining why they’re deserving of the scholarship and how they will use the funds to advance their entrepreneurial goals.
To be eligible, applicants must be a full-time student currently enrolled (or about to be enrolled) in an accredited university in the 50 United States or the District of Columbia. Applicants are also required to have a verifiable minimum GPA of 2.5 and be at least 18 years old at the time of submission.
