mPower Scholarship Program
The Scholarship Program
The mPower scholarship program is designed to encourage, support, educate, and promote emerging leaders in business-to-business marketing. Through this program, BMA Chicago provides five $5,000 scholarships to Chicago-area college students with a major or area of concentration in marketing, communication, media, and/or journalism. This unique program helps college students through difficult economic times; exposes students to the practices, trends, and companies within the B-to-B industry; and connects young professionals with established industry leaders and potential employers.
The college scholarship program is partially funded through the BMA Chicago mPower media auction. Through the mPower auction, media organizations are able to provide philanthropic support to the community and the industry while simultaneously providing value-added media for current or prospective clients. Previous participants include The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, CFO, Fortune, Crain's, The Economist, IndustryWeek, CNNMoney, Inc., Spirit, and CIO.
