WIDE Scholars have demonstrated a committed path to success, despite the societal inequities often stacked against them. With our university partners, we have selected impressive student leaders with a spirit of resiliency — who if not for some financial support and/or opportunities for real world experiences in marketing, advertising, media, and research — might not otherwise find gainful means to pursue purposeful careers in our field.
