The Data Group’s Annual Technology Scholarship

Our Scholarship

data-group-scholarshipWith offices located nationwide, we‘re quickly becoming the number one data provider for organizations ranging from start-ups to fortune 1000 companies. Our success in this field has opened up the opportunity for us to give back.

Our company consists of technology experts who have studied and understand the value of the education they have received. Studying is currently an incredibly expensive journey to embark upon, and many young people are not able to begin or continue their studies due to lack of financial support. We see this as a waste of talent, and detrimental to how needed technologically-minded people are. We want to see young people with the same passion we have, have the opportunities that have led us to where we are today.

Our annual scholarship will be awarded to those that can explore their current relationship with technology as well as look to the future to see where their passion for technology may take them.
