ATLANTA, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Liaison Technologies, a leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced the launch of a new college scholarship designed to empower the next generation of data-inspired leaders.
Applications are now being accepted for Liaison's Data-Inspired Future Scholarship, aimed at encouraging tomorrow's leaders to consider the growing influence of data in today's digital world and the ways in which it will revolutionize business and society in the future. The biannual scholarship program will award two enterprising high school seniors or college students with $5,000 each to put toward educational expenses. The respective deadlines to apply for this year's scholarships are May 31 and October 31, 2017; recipients will be announced June 30 and November 30, 2017.
"Insight gained from data is driving innovation across every aspect of our lives — from personalized healthcare to the smart cities we live in to the streamlined delivery of the goods we purchase online," said Pamela Osborne, director of human resources for Liaison Technologies. "We want to see what tomorrow's data experts have to say about the role of data in creating a more vibrant future and the obstacles we face in getting there."
As the volume, variety and velocity of data continues to dramatically increase, so too does the demand for integration and data management professionals and data scientists. With this scholarship, Liaison hopes to inspire students to pursue careers in the fast-growing data fields and apply their considerable talents to helping us better integrate, secure, and derive insight from data.
Available to high school seniors or to current undergraduate or graduate college students, the Data-Inspired Future Scholarship will provide resources to help talented students in any field launch their careers. To apply, entrants must submit a resume, along with a 30-60-second video that addresses an important aspect of data, relative to today or the future, along with one interesting fact about themselves.
