Scholarship

The Future of SaaS Scholarship

Animalz is a content marketing agency based in New York City. We offer high-end content marketing solutions to SaaS, tech, and crypto companies. Our employees come from academically diverse backgrounds and we want to use our experience to mentor college students interested in our industry.

The SaaS (software as a service) industry is expanding and in need of thoughtful, curious minds to drive the next generation of companies. You don’t need to be an engineer or have an MBA to have a great career in tech. Nearly every SaaS company employees people in the fields of marketing, customer support, sales, project management, and design.

Who Is Eligible?

All college students interested in a career in the software and technology industry are eligible.

What Does the Scholarship Entail?

A $500 scholarship will be awarded to three students for the 2018-19 academic year.

Recipients will have also have the opportunity to speak with members of the Animalz about their careers.

We are looking for applicants who:

  • Are interested in SaaS (and specifically B2B),
  • Can articulate knowledge of the tech industry in video and application,
  • And, have already taken steps towards a career in tech (via internships, personal projects, blogging, etc.).
