Investing in Students, Building Careers
We cultivate many resources to grow the scholarship support vital to our students’ ability to pursue a Stevenson degree. Partnerships with area businesses are key to providing this support. Two such partnerships were recently established that provide not only scholarship funding but also valuable employment opportunities for our students.
Agora Invests in Digital Marketing Students
Agora, Inc., recently welcomed 19 students from the digital marketing program to their offices in mid-town Baltimore to learn about the publishing company and its new scholarship opportunity.
Following lunch and remarks from Brian York, Managing Director of Agora Integrated Marketing, students took part in informal interviews with Agora associates, toured two of Agora’s buildings in the Mount Vernon complex, and met with other Agora staff to learn about the transition from college to career.
Students also learned about Agora’s new scholarship, the Bill Bonner Scholarship for Rising Leaders in Digital Marketing. Named after Agora’s founder and president, this scholarship will benefit a freshman or sophomore who is pursuing a degree in digital marketing. The student receiving the scholarship will also participate in a summer internship at one of Agora’s companies.
Samuelson Foundation and LifeBridge Health Invest in Nursing Students
With the purpose of investing in students who show great promise for long and successful nursing careers, the Herman and Walter Samuelson Foundation has partnered with LifeBridge Health to offer scholarships of $12,000 to junior and senior students in Stevenson’s nursing program. As part of the competitive application process, candidates will participate in interviews with representatives from LifeBridge Health. The Herman and Walter Samuelson Foundation Scholarship for Nursing also provides a two-year employment commitment at Sinai Hospital or Northwest Hospital.
