About the scholarship

Being an industry leader in data quality solutions, Experian Data Quality sees the need for data-savvy professionals in the workplace across all industries and professions. The evolution of data has made it so that data isn’t exclusive only for analysts, scientists, or marketers; it is now vital to the success of professionals across all spectrums. Athletes, musicians, lawyers, doctors, and so many others that you wouldn’t think rely on data, do rely on data for their day-to-day success.

But now the question is: Who’s going to carry the torch and drive this trend forward? The answer is you!

Experian Data Quality wants to help graduating college seniors with their educational costs. We believe in the power that data gives people, and we also believe that everyone has a unique story surrounding how they use data in their daily passions. That’s why we’re hugely excited to invite you to apply to our Data Quality Scholarship.

This is a unique opportunity for you soon-to-be college graduates to show us how you use data in your everyday life and how you see it shaping the world and the professional landscape you’re moving into. We encourage creativity, uniqueness, and thoughtfulness from our applicants—there’s no right or wrong answer! What we’re looking for is the individual best able to captivate the audience and tell their story.

As part of this scholarship, we ask applicants to create a short one- to two-minute video along with a short essay, as explained in the link to the application to the right. We will then vote in an internal committee to select our finalists.

So put your thinking caps on and think outside the box, be passionate, and most of all, have fun with this contest! We encourage you to share your final production within your social networks and let them help you spread your data story!
