Red Ventures Launches College Scholarship Contest

Leading digital marketing and sales company to award five scholarships to college students across the US

INDIAN LAND, S.C. – Red Ventures, a technology-enabled marketing and sales company, announced a new scholarship program today awarding five US college students $2,000 each towards financial aid in the 2017-2018 school year.

The scholarship program is open to rising Juniors and Seniors in 25 states ranging from the Midwest to the East Coast. Applicants must be on track to graduate between May 2018 and May 2019.

Known for building innovative solutions that help large brands augment their digital marketing and phone sales, Red Ventures is asking students to write essays about how and why companies need to adapt to accommodate their increasingly tech-centric consumers.

In 2015, Red Ventures launched GoodCall, a search engine that uses technology and advanced algorithms to help students easily identify scholarships with a low barrier to entry. In 2016, CEO Ric Elias started RoadtoHire, a nonprofit program that offers job training and placement for underemployed young adults in the Charlotte metro area.

The scholarship contest will remain open from May 1st, 2017 until July 10th, 2017, with winners being announced no later than July 31st, 2017.
