Row Zero is offering a scholarship of $1,000 to be awarded to one student each year pursuing an undergraduate course of study in a field focused on data analytics. The scholarship is available to current and future students enrolled in a data analytics themed program. Analytical programs include but are not limited to accounting, economics, engineering, business, data analytics, data science, computer science, information systems, or any other analytical field at a college or university anywhere in the United States or Canada.
Row Zero's mission is to bring the power of big data analysis to everyone. The most common data analysis tool in the world is the spreadsheet. The problem is as data sets have grown, the capabilities of spreadsheets have stagnated, triggering a wave of analytics products that are complicated to learn, require knowledge of database and programming languages, priced as enterprise solutions rather than ubiquitous tools, and often too rigid to support complex models and processes commonly built in spreadsheets. We built Row Zero to let anyone with spreadsheet skills work with big data and share their analysis with their peers and business partners.
To that end, Row Zero also wants to support the next generation of analysts currently working their way through undergraduate programs. The founders of Row Zero were both fortunate enough to receive scholarships that helped lessen the financial burden of higher education. They turned their education and analytical skills into a successful career and appreciate the value those contributions to their education afforded them. The hope is this scholarship helps out students with the same passion for analytical thinking.
