Affiliate Summit, founded by Missy Ward and Shawn Collins in 2003, was created for the purpose of providing educational sessions on the latest industry issues and fostering a productive networking environment for affiliate marketers.
As part of the ongoing education initiative of the conference, Affiliate Summit will be providing scholarships to U.S. college students.
These Affiliate Marketing Scholarships are only open to currently enrolled students at a college or university in the United States.
There will be as many as 10 scholarships awarded of $1,000 each.
In order to submit for a chance to receive the scholarship, qualified entrants must submit an essay of 250-500 words below answering the question, “What is your biggest frustration with online shopping and how would you suggest fixing it?” by June 1, 2013.
Scholarship entries must be submitted at http://www.affiliatesummit.com/affiliate-marketing-scholarship.
Winners will be contacted by August 1, 2013.
Over the 10 years and dozens of events in the Affiliate Summit portfolio, each successive year has been bigger than the last, despite years of challenging economic times.
This trend shows no signs of changing with the upcoming Affiliate Summit East 2013, taking place August 18-20 in Philadelphia.
The top sponsorships are sold out for Affiliate Summit East 2013, and many of the smaller sponsorships are already gone.
Also, the exhibit hall and Meet Market are quickly filling up, and both are expected to sell out again.
This three day conference will include an exhibit hall with affiliates, merchants, vendors, and networks, as well as multiple tracks of educational sessions covering the latest trends and information from affiliate marketing experts.
The keynotes for Affiliate Summit East 2013 will be Rae Hoffman, CEO of PushFire; Dr. Randal Pinkett, Chairman and CEO of BCT Partners, as well as a philanthropist, author, and season 4 Winner of NBC’s The Apprentice; and Wil Reynolds, Founder of SEER Interactive.
