Support AMA Student Leaders Making An Impact In Our Profession and Community
Donate to the AMA Foundation this #GivingTuesday (November 30) to make a difference in the life of a student marketer. #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, uses the power of social media to inspire activism and philanthropy. As the philanthropic arm of the AMA, the AMAF elevates marketing visionaries, empowers future generations, inspires a more diverse industry and ensures marketing research impacts public good.
Gifts to the AMA Foundation go directly towards our two collegiate scholarships:
The Social Impact Scholarship recognizes marketing students who are making a positive difference within their local, regional or larger community.
Meghan, a 2020 Social Impact Scholarship winner, believes social impact is a ripple effect—one act of “good” can start a chain reaction of positive and uplifting experiences for an entire community. Her work influencing the Philadelphia City Council to allocate greater resources to Philadelphia’s children facing lead poisoning led to her joining a school club to make social impact more accessible. She grew existing events and built relationships with other committees and local businesses to increase engagement, establish lasting initiatives and create genuine impact at Penn and in Philadelphia. This scholarship has reinforced the important part that social impact has within her life.
The Diversity Leadership Scholarship recognizes minority students who demonstrate leadership in their chapter activities or in other areas of their lives.
Zion, a 2020 Diversity Leadership Scholarship winner, embraces his diversity and uses it as motivation to demonstrate leadership in all aspects of life. With his leadership and guidance, Zion’s AMA chapter overcame fundraising hurdles and exceeded their goals, as well as improved their ranking at the International Collegiate Conference competition. His involvement with the AMA has taught him that marketing can be used for good and people must learn to market themselves to create life-changing opportunities. This scholarship alleviated his financial stress and opened up new professional opportunities.
