eduWeb Scholarship for Developing Professionals

Guest Post: Building Confidence and Community Through the eduWeb Scholarship

“Getting to hear from other social media experts in higher education felt a lot like coming home. I was encouraged to hear that I wasn’t alone in the things I dealt with on the job– there was an entire community of people out there who were just like me. Not only was I validated and understood, but I was welcomed. I expected to feel like an impostor in a room full of geniuses, but I didn’t; instead I felt both recognized and inspired.”

Guest Post: How the eduWeb Scholarship Impacted Me

“I was a year into my role as the social media strategist at a small, private, women’s college (and struggling with some intense imposter syndrome) the day I saw a tweet promoting eduWeb’s 2019 scholarship program. Our college had been through some major changes in the previous two years, as the marketing and communications office was reduced from a staff of eight to… just me. Learning to navigate the #TeamOf1 life was difficult, especially considering that I was new to the field. And that’s where the eduWeb scholarship comes in.”

At the core of the eduWeb Digital Summit is the commitment to advancing the communications field in higher education. To us, this includes supporting developing professionals, whether they are in their first job or are new to the industry from another career.

We can’t think of a better way to support these developing professionals than to allow them to interact with their peers, meet with other members of the industry, learn from presenters, and join a community that will support them as they grow. Therefore, we’ve created the eduWeb Scholarship for Developing Professionals.


The eduWeb Scholarship for Developing Professionals includes:

  • Full conference registration ($1,250 value)
  • Discounted #eduWeb21 conference registration
  • Panel presentation with fellow scholarship winners at #eduWeb20

  • Have 3 years of industry experience or less
  • Identify the track they would like to expand their knowledge in
    • Content and Email Marketing
    • Social Media
    • Using Data and Analytics
    • Web/Mobile Design and Strategy
  • Tweet at us @eduwebconf using #eduweb20 to tell us why you deserve to be one of our scholarship winners!
