2017 DialedTech Internet Marketing Scholarships

Each year we offer to any eligible high school or college student the opportunity to apply for our annual DT Internet Marketing Scholarship. We know we’re going to have another great group of applicants this year, and we’re eager for the applications to start coming in.

We recognize that not every talented writer in college is going to be enrolled in an MBA or even a business program at all. None of us here at DialedTech.com and Crank101.com had any inclination at all the direction we’d be taking after college. Rest assured, our undergrad and graduate degrees had nothing at all to do with Internet Marketing! There weren’t any Internet Marketing Scholarships when we were in school.

DialedTech (DT) is our parent company. DT is an internationally based (read, digitally nomadic) company currently based in Helsinki, Sweden. We came up with the idea for an IM scholarship in 2016, and riding on the tail of a great success last year, we’ll continue to offer this scholarship in 2017 and beyond. If you would like to apply for one of our $500 scholarships – application details, including eligibility are below. Best of luck!
