The Ray Greenly Scholarship is designed to provide financial support to college students who are pursuing a degree in any field relevant to digital retail, such as engineering, computer science, marketing, business, e-commerce, and economics.
There will be one $25,000 scholarship to the winner and four $10,000 scholarships to each runner-up.
The Ray Greenly Scholarship will give technology and supply chain students the opportunity to attend the NRF Foundation Student Program in New York City.
Interested students should have in mind the eligibility criteria for this scholarship.
The Ray Greenly Scholarship is available to sophomore, junior and senior undergraduates and graduate students enrolled full-time at any accredited U.S. college or university.
The applicant does not have to be in a retail program or major to apply but should demonstrate how their chosen major or graduate program is relevant to digital retail.
If you belong to those students who are pursuing a degree in any field relevant to digital retail, such as engineering, computer science, marketing, business, e-commerce, and economics you are eligible and strongly encouraged to apply.
Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale and they must be U.S citizens or legal U.S residents eligible to work in the United State and at least eighteen years of age.
The age requirement is nineteen years in Alabama, Delaware, and Nebraska and twenty-one years in Mississippi.
Students younger than the ages listed can only enter with the written consent of their parent or legal guardian.
