You asked for it and now we have it - the official MSOZACADEMIC blog for Faculty!  It was great to meet everyone at the recent Faculty lunch.  Just to recap on the 2005 programs:

You can make a Difference

We have just recently launched this program.  It is a worldwide scholarship contest for high school/secondary school students (ages 14-18)

 

To apply, students propose an idea for how they would like to use technology to help a charity (they do not actually have to implement the idea to apply).  10 worldwide finalists (5 females, 5 males) will be selected and each will receive US$5,000 to be divided up as follows:

  • US$1,500 budget to implement the project
  • US$2,500 scholarship
  • US$1,000 donation to the student’s high school
