AMA Career Forum Grants
For almost 40 years, the Student Career Forums (SCF) by Marketing EDGE have introduced students to the world of direct/digital and data-driven marketing. In addition, these forums delivered practical information to students on what they can do to prepare for a career in marketing while they are still in school. Offered in different regions across the country, the forums also gave students a glimpse into marketers’ day-to-day lives and valuable tips on landing internships and their first job out of school.
Moving forward, the American Marketing Association will be providing select AMA Collegiate Regional Events with Career Forum Grants to elevate their career development components and broaden their reach beyond the host institution, as we aim to continue the purpose of the SCFs.
Selected chapters will receive:
- $1,000 Student Career Forum Grant
- Support from the AMA Collegiate Communities Team throughout the event planning process
- Assistance in marketing and communication efforts, including email, social media, and website
To be selected, a regional event should:
- Include a career development-focused keynote event or panel
- Include networking opportunities between students and professionals
- Be open to students within their region, beyond the institution, and regardless of AMA membership
- Include in its program outcomes to prepare students for a career in marketing, whether during their time at school, or post-graduation
- Event can be either existing or inaugural
- Chapters at Minority-serving Institutions (HBCUs, HSIs, etc.) are especially welcome to apply
- Selection will also take into consideration regional scope, to represent at least four unique areas during the year
Once your chapter submits, the AMA collegiate team will consider your application and begin the selection process 2-3 weeks after the form closes. Please note, only one application per regional event will be considered.
