New Marcademy Fellows Scholarships Help Veterans, National Guard and Reserves Learn Internet Marketing
San Francisco, CA, December 12, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Marcademy, Inc. (http://marcademy.com/) announced that it is accepting applications for its 2014 class of Marcademy Fellows. The Marcademy Fellows program is an intensive 16 week full-ride scholarship program that begins on March 6, 2014. It’s the San Francisco-based institution’s newest digital marketing training program exclusively for U.S. military veterans, transitioning service members, and current National Guard and Reserves personnel.
Each instructional cycle is limited to 24 students and combines the best of two effective learning models – hands-on instruction where students learn Internet marketing from world-class professionals and a peer-to-peer collaborative learning component which helps establish a solid networking foundation. Without the burden of tuition or fees, and zero out-of-pocket costs, Fellows receive many of the perks of a military education without relying on Post 9/11 GI Bill or VA education benefits.
At the completion, Fellows will have exclusive access to unpublished job opportunities through MarketPro, the country’s leading marketing recruitment agency.
"Among the many decisions military veterans make when transitioning to life as a civilian, taking stock of how in-service experience transfers to the civilian world should top the list,” said Tim O’Connor, Marcademy‘s chief executive officer. “For example, a military career in artillery may not have a direct civilian equivalent, but various skills may be transferable. If a career in Internet marketing is of interest, the Marcademy Fellows program will complement those with demonstrated experiences with analytics, strategy or numbers.”
Monthly sessions are facilitated by one or more members of the Marcademy faculty and staff, allowing ample opportunity to apply learnings to real business challenges. Topics range from search engine optimization to affiliate marketing to coding for marketers and more. To be accepted as a Fellow, startups must meet the following requirements:
- Be an Honorably Discharged veteran of any branch of the USA Military Services, transitioning out of active duty service, or currently a member of the Guard or Reserve
- Completed a minimum of 60 college credit hours from an accredited institution
- Able to attend weekly classes (in-person or online)
- Commit to learning Marcademy’s fullstack digital marketing curriculum and engaging with other Marcademy Fellows
Guidelines and the application form for the 2014 Marcademy Fellows program is available online at http://marcademy.com/. Applications will be accepted until January 31, 2014.
