Annual DeepBlueDiving.org Marketing Scholarship
DeepBlueDiving.org is a website that highlights the technical aspects of scuba diving. We review scuba gear and provide posts on scuba diving overall. It is our goal to provide our visitors with up-to-date information on scuba gear as well as purchase guidance if they are in need of a specific piece of equipment.
We are always looking for talent to help us produce content for the site that is helpful to our visitors. You can check out our posts and reviews below to get an idea of the quality of content we’re committed to providing. We recognize that some of our content requires deep research and can end up being quite technical.
DeepBlueDiving.org is a strong advocate for higher learning. We established a yearly scholarship fund in the amount of USD 1,000. We are looking for students in Undergraduate or Postgraduate levels to apply for this scholarship. Students in the programs related to Marketing, Business, Engineering, or IT (amongst others) can apply to this program. Besides being an enlisted student at a college in the US the only other eligibility requirement is that you have a passion to write for marketing and to bring technical content closer to readers.
We would be delighted to receive your application for the scholarship. We’ll be happy to provide you with further detail should you require more information.
Please review the eligibility requirements as well as the application process below. There will be one winner each year for the scholarship. The winner will receive the scholarship amount within 30 days after the application deadline.
