We are pleased to announce Mary Nelson as the first recipient of the MinneAnalytics Scholarship. Mary attends University of Minnesota Duluth where she is pursuing a bachelor of science in statistics and actuarial science with a minor in marketing analytics. She also interns at Maurices as a digital marketing associate, getting hands on experience as an analyst.
The MinneAnalytics Scholarship is a way for our organization to invest back in the community and support the next generation of Minnesota analytics professionals. The $5,000 scholarship is funded by MinneAnalytics and distributed through the Minnesota High Tech Association Foundation STEM Scholarship Program.
In a recent interview with TECHdotMN, MinneAnalytics co-founder Dan Atkins discussed the future of the organization’s investment in education:
“Hopefully we can get into a position to do more meaningful work. We want to elevate analytics to a terminal degree in Minnesota and that starts at the high school level.”
Thank you to all of our members. Your participation in the community makes these investments possible.
