Recently, I got an email from Jamie Smith, about a scholarship program there are having. Because I believe in education and the cost is high, I thought I would share info on this scholarship contest.
Unfortunately, I have been seeing a large number of commercials on TV for universities that have questionable accreditation credentials. One boasts of preparing students for technology certification exams. But a search for this school on Google or Bing brings up questionable business practices, questionable accreditation and high tuition costs – after all, it is a for profit university. I feel a student would be better off getting an associates degree in computer science or related technology, from their in-district junior college. Then just take some private industrial courses, to prepare for certification. Anyway, let me turn this over to Jamie:

“We have decided to start a scholarship contest , because, as a young, growing start up ourself, we understand the importance of counting every penny when trying to start your dreams.

“During our final decision process, we will reward the scholarship entry with the most creativity, originality, and clarity of purpose. Because the scholarship is not limited by GPA, major, or geographic region, we hope we to give a voice and opportunity to every type of student. In conclusion, we hope our scholarship can teach our applicants that being successful in the start up world is not necessarily dependent on traditional metrics, but rather staying true to your most passionate ideas.”
