Academic Honors

Under 30 Scholar—Ashley Scott was recognized as a 2019 Forbes Under 30 Scholar. The renowned scholarship program awards a diverse group of college students and recent graduates under age 30 an exclusive pass to attend the company’s flagship Under 30 Summit, which was hosted by Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans this past October in Detroit, MI. Each year, Forbes selects 1,000 students from across the country to participate in its four-day event, designed to bring together young entrepreneurs and leaders in business, technology, and innovation. Ashley’s efforts, partnering with IBM, Brainstorm, and a local, non-profit NYC chapter of Women in Data, to increase diversity and educate women on careers in computer science earned her the honor. She recently completed her Master’s in business administration at Mercy College, in managerial analytics, and is now a data analyst at Einstein, in the office of medical education. She represented Einstein, which was recognized by Forbes last year as one of the best midsize employers in the nation.
