The ExpressVPN Future of Privacy Scholarship
Deadline: August 31, 2016
Grand prize: $2,500, second prize: $1,000, third prize: $500. The ExpressVPN Future of Privacy Scholarship was created to raise awareness around Internet privacy and security. The way we use the Internet is shaping the future of our education system. By 2018, ninety-nine percent of classrooms across the U.S. will be equipped with unprotected high-speed broadband. But with that growing connectivity comes an increased risk of privacy exposure. As more students are bringing their Internet-ready devices to class, awareness of basic online security and a fundamental understanding of privacy rights are more important than ever.
