About the San Diego Web Design Scholarship for Mira Costa Students
My name is Anita and I’m the owner of ACA Web Consulting. As an alumnus of the MAT program (previously IMT) at Mira Costa, I am forever grateful for the skills I learned that have enabled me to run a successful digital marketing agency in Carlsbad. I believe students who are enrolled in the MAT program have an opportunity to have successful careers in the digital marketing world or perhaps start your own business like I did. I want to encourage students who are currently in the MAT program by offering a San Diego Web Design Scholarship of $500. This is a twice yearly scholarship. One for fall and one for spring to two separate recipients.
To be eligible to apply for this San Diego Web Design Scholarship you must follow these guidelines:
