COLONIAL GHOSTS SCHOLARSHIP
for History & Marketing Students
We believe education is one of the most valuable pursuits a person can dedicate themselves to.
In the world of accredited education, we believe the discipline that best combines these two elements, human psychology and communication, is marketing. We live in a free market society, and in such a society, markets are what drive the practical study of human psychology and communication most effectively. Why? Because markets, groups of people united by common desires or frustrations, are groups of people that cast their votes with their money. Not with surveys. Not with personality tests. Not with focus groups. Not even with a political ballot or clinical therapy.
That old phrase, “put your money where your mouth is”, is powerful for a reason. It’s because money represents a unit of our life that we can’t get back. Time. Sweat. Blood. Tears. Hard work. That’s what money is really a symbol for. Our toil. And we don’t lie when we’re voting with our money.
All that said, we believe in a free market society, the study of marketing is critical to the development of not only ethical, productive businesses, but society at large. To promote marketing education, every year Colonial Ghosts gives one young marketing student a $1000.00 scholarship to support his or her studies.
