The Meta Elevate scholarship program

Meta Elevate is awarding 100,000 scholarships through Meta Blueprint, giving Black professionals and students an opportunity to earn a Meta Certification for free.

Meta Certification is valuable training that can help you plan and run more efficient campaigns. And it works—Business Manager client accounts managed by people with a Meta Certification have shown the highest increase in effective spend, increasing more than 20 points.

Meet Anikitia Abram

Anikitia is a digital marketer and small business owner based in Georgia who was recently awarded a Meta Elevate scholarship. Anikitia earned a Meta Digital Marketing Associate Certification and used the knowledge she gained to scale her business. Free access to the certification proved to be a strong resource for Anikitia, as she didn’t have the funds to hire an agency to help her business grow.

Anikitia’s story is one example of how great an impact these educational tools and resources can have on the lives and dreams of many small business owners and professionals.
