Why Offer a Scholarship?
The cost of higher education has dramatically increased in recent years, making it harder and harder for college bound students to pay for the college experience. We view this as a major problem, and wanted to see if we could chip in to help. That's why we established The Annual Innovate | Communicate College Scholarship Essay Contest. Applicants must submit an essay addressing a technology related topic provided by us. The winning entry will be awarded a $2,000 scholarship.
Please see the contest application process below. We look forward to reading your submissions.
