Deadline Extended: Apply for a She Runs It 2017 Education Loan Relief Award Today!
By She Runs It
Today, bright young women are entering the marketing and media industry with modest starting salaries and student loan debt that can be four times what they make in a single year. To date, She Runs It has paid $500,000 towards loan debt from undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education courses. As we enter our 6th year of giving, She Runs It wants to continue to do our part to help alleviate the burden of student loan debt for our membership – don’t miss your chance, apply for a 2017 Education Loan Relief Award today!
Who is eligible?
- You must be a female member of She Runs It. (Not a member? Join She Runs It today and gain access to this exclusive members only benefit!)
- You must be the recipient of an undergraduate degree or graduate degree OR enrolled in industry relevant continuing education courses prior to application submission.
- Loans/invoices must be held in the name of the applicant to qualify for this award.
What are we looking for?
We’ll be looking at your track record of success to date, but also we want to hear how you plan to give back to the She Runs It community if you win this award. Will you commit to being a mentor for a certain period of time? Will you bring other members into our community and help extend the sisterhood; will you lend your talents to one or more committees? Are you already an active She Runs It member? We want to hear about that too. Your level of dedication is important to us.
Your level of commitment to your firm is also important to the companies in our industry who are the most significant contributors to our fundraising efforts. These donor companies have expressed an appreciation of your commitment to stay at your organization for a certain period of time. Others would enjoy seeing you spearhead a movement with She Runs It to help your colleagues get involved. Some companies would appreciate both!
When applying for an award this year, help our judges understand how you will pay it forward to other women in your organization and to your organization as a whole, to show your thanks.
All applications must be submitted by Friday, September 15th, 2017 @ 5PM ET. Only completed applications will be considered.
