HostGator’s Annual Scholarship

Each school semester, HostGator aims to help college students achieve their goals of graduating and entering the professional world. In fact, HostGator web hosting was founded in a college dorm room back in 2002, so we understand the importance and the impact students can make in the world. That’s why we’re so excited to announce our 2018 fall technology scholarship for college students!

Being in the technology sector ourselves, we know firsthand what a massive impact technology has made. Now we want to know your thoughts on how technology will impact the future.

We will be selecting three students to win a $1,500 scholarship based on their answers to the essay question, “In what industry or area do you see technology making the largest impact in the next 10 years?”

These scholarship funds must be used for qualified school expenses such as tuition, fees, books and board for the 2018-2019 academic year.
