Calling Startups, Small Businesses, Non-Profits & Students: Apply for a Scholarship to SMW NYC courtesy of Nokia



Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

Beginning this February 2014, SMW New York will move all official programming to our new Campus venue. We believe this will provide a better, more enhanced and immersive experience all around. It also means no more running throughout NYC to get to our events. With this, we’re introducing new pass packages, which means that to access our SMW NYC official events, attendees must purchase an Insider, Campus or CMO Pass.

With this change, we recognize that not everyone can afford to purchase a pass. Because SMW is built on a philosophy of openness and inclusivity, we’re launching a Scholarship Program in partnership with Nokia that will provide complimentary Campus Passes to 500 eligible people.

The Campus Pass provides access to our new experiential floor, which includes co-working spaces, networking lounges, The Future of Now Exhibition, and a Pop Up Marketplace for Digital Brands, plus all official sessions, including two floors of programming, including keynotes, panels and masterclasses (which are always subject to availability).

So who qualifies? We’re looking to help:

  1. students (currently enrolled)
  2. non-profit employees
  3. startup or small business employees (defined as a company with no more than 10 employees)

If this is you, you’re in luck! You can apply here, and if you’re application is successful, we will notify you within one week. Please note, that we have a limited number of Scholarships and cannot guarantee that your application will be accepted.

And of course, a very special thanks to Nokia for supporting this campaign! Without their ongoing commitment to the SMW mission the Scholarship Program would not be possible.
