The Corporate Culture Scholarship sponsored by The Investor’s Podcast is open to all undergraduate and graduate students currently attending any North American university.
Throughout multiple episodes, The Investor’s Podcast has studied the corporate culture of multiple industries and found it to be the most important indicator of future success. The intention of the scholarship is to expose corporations’ increasing focus on profit and decreasing interest in employees’ well-being. The Investor’s Podcast firmly believes that a highly profitable company shouldn’t come at the expense of its employees’ happiness. We believe that sustainable profitability originates from the employees’ happiness, and that value creation for society and the individual starts with the employers’ genuine actions of showing how much they care.

About The Investor’s Podcast
When we communicate with our visitors or audience, we seek to teach them fundamental truths and ideas to make quality and thoughtful decisions. We seek to make our listeners more effective, efficient, and happy. The finance culture is often a rude and greedy place. Confusion is encouraged to protect profits. The Investor’s Podcast creates the exact opposite culture and community. When people listen to the podcast or visit any TIP webpage, they know it’s unbiased and putting the listener first.
