Digital media is something that we all enjoy and use on a daily basis. Digital media allows us to quickly research information, connect with long lost friends, entertain, and even inspire. If you personally are inspired by digital media, enter Mercury Satellite's Digital Dreamer Scholarship and you might win $500 dollars!
Who Can Apply?
At this time, our scholarship is open to any undergraduate student actively enrolled full-time at an accredited higher learning institution in the United States. You can apply for the MercurySat Digital Dreamer Scholarship if you meet the following requirements:

- You are a full-time student enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited institution.

Having internet access is the source of a great deal of our entertainment and development today. The internet has paved the way to more job opportunities by not only creating jobs, but also changing traditional roles. For instance, newspaper journalism has slowly morphed into digital journalism as our culture now is more likely to seek out news and information online than in paper format.
Digital media has also provided an avenue for talented kids, teens and adults to display their abilities online in non-traditional ways and provide others with the resources necessary to share, collaborate, and learn all over the globe. We are offering this scholarship as a way to inspire individuals to pursue careers and further develop the digital media space all across America.
