Acxiom Diversity Scholarship recipient
University of Arkansas at Little Rock students won four of this year's 10 Acxiom Diversity Scholarships.
In its sixth year, the highly competitive program provides $5,000 and an opportunity for a paid internship at Acxiom, a leading data provider for marketers.
The company selects recipients from throughout the country based on their professional interests and academic achievement in an information technology-related field of study.
"Acxiom is passionate about helping the next generation of leaders pursue their dreams through computer science and information technology careers," said Scott Howe, Acxiom CEO and president, in a news release. "Our support positions them for future success and helps foster a more diverse pool of qualified talent, which will benefit the marketing and technology industries for years to come."
All four UA Little Rock award winners are students in the Donaghey College of Engineering and Information Technology.
This year's award decisions were particularly challenging because of the quality of the scholarship applications, said Tammy Sanders, Acxiom director of engagement.
"We look forward to the contributions these students will make to Acxiom and to the marketing industry," Sanders said in the news release.
