The application deadline for candidates to apply to the Reason One Mentorship and Scholarship program is April 20, 2021. For more information, visit www.reasononeinc.com/romsp.

In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, the protests sparked by the tragic death of George Floyd, and the disproportionate effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on marginalized communities, Reason One has committed to expand opportunities for marginalized communities and help build the next generation of diverse leaders. The agency launched its first annual mentorship and scholarship program to promote diversity in the Canadian and U.S. tech industry. The Reason One Mentorship and Scholarship Program (ROMSP) will award Black students between the ages of 17-35 years old enrolled or recently accepted in a digital-discipline program, pursuing or with plans to pursue a career in tech.

The mentorship and scholarship program aims to improve access and remove financial barriers for Black students with six (6) scholarships, including a $10,000 scholarship and five (5) $1000 micro-scholarships. The $10,000 scholarship recipient receives a 1-year mentorship program with Reason One, which involves career planning, professional development, and mentorship to help inform and prepare their transition to a career in tech.
