The Cayman Islands Marketing Professionals Association (CIMPA) has awarded its annual marketing scholarship to 19-year-old Gabriella Watson of Bodden Town.

The non-profit organization awarded the CI$5,000 merit-based grant to support Miss Watson with her continuing education as she heads off to begin studying for her bachelor’s degree, in pursuit of a career in the marketing industry.

“I would like to express my gratitude to CIMPA for their generosity and support. I was honoured to learn that I was selected as the recipient of this year’s CIMPA Scholarship.

“The scholarship funds will be used towards my college tuition as I prepare to embark on a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Marketing Management at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). I am excited for this journey ahead, and so grateful for the financial support which allows me.

CIMPA’s annual scholarship recipient is selected by a panel of judges who score the applicants on their commitment to pursuing a career in marketing, their passion and drive for the industry and their involvement in giving back to our local community. The applications are anonymized to ensure that every applicant is given a fair opportunity.

“CIMPA remains committed to the next generation of Caymanian marketers and the CIMPA scholarship is just one of the ways that we give.

“We were highly impressed at Gabriella’s civic-mindedness and her determination to pursue marketing as her career. We look forward to.

The annual scholarship grant is supported through CIMPA’s annual events and fundraising efforts. The association hosts a variety of networking, training and professional development events curated for those at every level of their marketing career.
