Mobile test prep company Pocket Prep today announces the launch of the fall edition of its Racial Equity Scholarship. The company launched the scholarship program in 2020 in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Pocket Prep’s scholarship program provides financial coverage and support for members of minoritized communities who are pursuing professional certification. These members have traditionally been underrepresented in the field in which they’re seeking certification when compared to America’s majority population.
“Our scholarship program is a favorite not only by students, but also our employees,” said Peter Murphy, CEO and Co-Founder of Pocket Prep. “Each year we look forward to launching it as part of our community outreach. We’ve greatly enjoyed getting to know each of our scholarship recipients in the past, and we are eager to meet future recipients.”
Applications for the scholarship are due by December 9, 2022. The program is suited for studying professionals who are preparing for one of the 130+ certifications that Pocket Prep offers study prep for industries spanning behavioral health, business, fitness, IT, nursing and more. Applicants should be sitting for their chosen certification exam between March 17, 2023 and September 17, 2023.
Five recipients will be chosen to receive the following:
- Study Support of $1,500
- Fully Paid Exam Registration Fee
- Paid Exam Study Materials (i.e. required textbooks, guides, software)
- Free Access to Pocket Prep’s Premium Study Material
