Here is your chance to win a $500 scholarship to apply towards your tuition. This scholarship is focused on getting students to think about future opportunities in their chosen career field. As the world enters its 4th industrial revolution, more and more new technologies (automation, robots, drones, driver-less cars, air taxis, 3d printing, etc.) are fusing together to create opportunities that did not exist just a few years ago.
However, there are also challenges as many traditional career paths will change rapidly due to a massive shift to automation. Students that think about their future with a positive growth mindset will adapt best. Our scholarship essay is designed to give students the opportunity to think about what their career will be like when they graduate and how they plan to make their skills and studies marketable in a changing job market.
