Scholarship

The use of social media in education provides students with the ability to get more useful information, to connect with learning groups and other educational systems that make education convenient. Social network tools such as Instagram afford students and institutions with multiple opportunities to improve learning methods. 

To encourage students interested in pursuing a career in marketing or social media or start their own social media related startup, we have created the Goread.io Bi-Annual Financial Aid Program for current full-time students at an accredited college or university.
