Talent is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not.

Inequality of opportunity is pronounced in the start-up world, where just 1% of start-ups receiving venture funding have Black founders and where the share of Black employees is around half that of the US population.

In support of building a more diverse and equitable start-up ecosystem, this scholarship is part of a series from Mechanism Ventures supporting Black students who are currently in or who aspire to pursue marketing roles at start-ups.

The Black Marketing Leaders Grant will be awarded to a Black student or recent graduate who plans on (or already is) pursuing a career in marketing at a start-up.

Students across any field of study or company are eligible to apply.

This scholarship is part of the Mechanism Ventures Impact Grants Series.
