Crabtree Diversity of Thought Sales Scholarship
Diversity of Thought in the business world allows an organization to explore different ways of approaching a goal through intentionally seeking out different points of view and not following the status quo. The Crabtree Diversity of Thought Sales Scholarship will be awarded to students who have demonstrated leadership through forward thinking, proactivity, and serving as a change-agent in community, campus or workplace situations.
This scholarship will be awarded to a full-time undergraduate student participating in the Mid-Atlantic Sales & Marketing Institute who completes their required One-Day Internship at Pohanka Automotive Group of Salisbury (pool of approximately 6-10 students). Candidates must have an overall cumulative GPA of 3.0 or more. You must have participated in the one-day internship this current fall semester. This scholarship will be applied to the upcoming spring semester financial aid for the selected student(s).
After completing the One-Day Internship, the applicant must submit a short essay (250 words or less) explaining how diversity of thought, thinking ‘outside of the box’ or ‘going against the grain’, benefits the workplace by introducing progressive thinking. Applicant must give specific examples of community and/or campus involvement where they have practiced diversity of thought and its effect on the outcome.
This scholarship will award two $2,500 scholarships for the upcoming spring semester only. The Perdue School Student Development Committee or their designee(s) will select the scholarship recipient(s).
