Izenda is once again offering its $1,000 Embedded BI and Analytics Scholarship

The scholarship will be awarded to one undergraduate or graduate student currently enrolled in an accredited U.S. college or university who is interested in pursuing a career that uses analytics.
Submissions for this year’s scholarship should tell a story leveraging a data source. This could be an essay, dashboard, chart or visualization. Some suggested topics are:
Technology topics like trends in languages or platforms
For example, your submission might contain a dashboard visualization that shows the impact of a current event on 2016 election polls or on financial markets. Or it could track the spread of a disease against public health interventions. We’ve included some links to sample data in the topics list above, but you are free to use other data sources.
Your submission does not need to be created using the Izenda embedded business intelligence platform. You can submit it as a document, spreadsheet, PowerPoint-type presentation or use another format. However the data you use should be real data.
