Here at PMA, our mission’s simple and we’ve never strayed from it: elevating the role of product marketing.
As well as propelling those who’re already bossing the role, part of that pursuit involves helping aspiring product marketers get their foot in the door... which is why our scholar program was born.
Since then, we’ve:
👋 Welcomed 300 scholars onto the program
💪 Put on 13 back-to-back cohorts
🤑 Invested more than $1,000,000 into the program
🔖 Enabled 300+ students to get officially PMMC certified
💼 Put all our scholar graduates into a 🔥 recruitment pot
😃 Genuinely made the product marketing role more accessible
😊 Wholeheartedly invested in the diversity of PMM

“If I hadn't signed up to the Scholar Program, I would have missed out on a lot of industry connections and valuable speaker content that is not available through other options. Without this tribe, and our mentor Harvey Lee, it definitely would have been a slower start into the product marketing industry.” - Seb Agudelo, Product Marketing Manager at Yabonza
It's packed with scholars from institutions like:

Why partner with the PMA Scholar Program?
We’re investing in the diversity of product marketing. We get a lot of applications for every cohort of our program. When a very real human being goes through and vets each one of them, we have diversity + inclusion at the forefront of our minds.
Product marketing is an incredible career path - we want everyone to have equal opportunities to experience it.
We’re investing in product marketing - period. There was a time when product marketing was seen as a ‘nice to have’. That time is long gone. PMMs are critical to company growth - now and in the future, and our program ensures a strong and steady pipeline of the next generation of PMMs is in place.
We’re giving back. We’ve experienced crazy growth since our inception and we want to give back to a profession we hold very close to our hearts. ❤️
We want to help you give back too.
