Tomorrow Scholarship

The Purpose of the Dig – BIPOC Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship is to recognize and reward exceptional post-secondary students who are interested in pursuing a career in consumer insights.  

We have extended the deadline to submit applications for
the BIPOC Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship until Wednesday, March 31st.

Scholarships available

There are two (2) scholarships available, each in the amount of $4,000 (CAN).

Scholarship recipients will receive a 3-month offer of paid employment either between academic years (i.e. summer) or as part of their study requirements (i.e. internship) in the year the scholarship is awarded. 

This internship can be done remotely or at our office in Toronto, Ontario.

• Demonstrate diverse extra-curricular participation and community involvement
• Currently enrolled in a post-secondary program from an accredited university or college in Canada
• Minimum cumulative 3.5 GPA or 80% average from their previous year of education.
***In the event students are unable to show academic achievement comparable to a 3.5 GPA or 80% average for their previous academic year, we encourage students to submit their last unofficial academic transcript based on the institution they’ve last completed their education. This includes international students who have studied outside of Canada and transcripts have different academic standards; Dig will use judgement in using transcripts in the application process.

***We encourage students to show their creativity in their essay or video! In addition to explaining their interest in consumer insights, we want to get to know our candidate(s). Suggested topics include demonstrating how they’ve been involved in the BIPOC community through volunteering, work or school, how they envision affecting change in the industry, and/or a good story we can all get behind. We love stories!
• A current, one-page resume
