Acxiom Awards Diversity Scholarships to 10 Students
26 Aug 2022
The Acxiom Diversity Scholarship Program, now in its 10th year, offers scholarships to U.S.-based students enrolled in a full-time post-secondary degree program in computer science, computer information systems, management information systems, information quality, information systems, engineering, mathematics, and statistics or related areas of study.
The goal of the program is to help create a more inclusive pipeline of future technology talent, and close the equity gap, by providing access to education for individuals who are underrepresented in the field. Scholarship winners are selected based on their ability to demonstrate academic achievement, field of study, and professional interest related to Acxiom’s business needs.
“Supporting the education of the next leaders in our industry is the most direct way we can effect change and encourage diversity within the computer science and information technology fields,” said Chad Engelgau, Acxiom CEO. “We congratulate this year’s group of exceptional scholarship recipients and look forward to their educational achievements and career contributions in the years ahead.”
