Today marks the last day of our first scholarship.
This has been absolutely AMAZING. We have had almost 400 submissions thus far and there are still more than 11 hours to go. Our goal for the scholarship was much more modest. This says a lot about three things.
- The economy has everyone looking for and thinking about how to pay for college.
- The FreshBrain concept is a good one. Teens are interested in a scholarship model where you are rewarded for what you create rather than just what you say.
- Fastweb is a great way to spread the word - as most of our traffic to the scholarship program is as a result of fastweb.
We will continue to focus on this program, searching out companies that are interested in helping us to offer great scholarships to teens based on demonstrated technology skills!
