Awards Given: 15
You can get one of 15 $1,000 cash award scholarships given by Custom Computer Specialists, Inc. CCSI helps schools at all levels with their technology needs in the CT, MA, NY, and RI areas. Students in these states are eligible.
The requirements are only that you write an essay answering the question posed on the application, that you are accepted to a trade school, 2-yr, or 4-yr college, and that you get a letter of recommendation.
This year’s question was: If you were in charge of enhancing education through technology at your school district, what technologies would you implement and why?
In 2012, there were only 400 applicants and 15 winners. That means you have a 3.75% chance of winning the scholarship. Those are better odds than winning the dime toss at the county fair!
Seems like a pretty simple thing to do for $1000. The deadline occurs each year in May.
