Submission: Please choose ONE of the topics below, and write an essay that shows us why you’re the ideal candidate for this scholarship. Essays must be from 500 to 1,000 words in length; longer or shorter essays will not be considered.
Topic #1: Advancing Human Connectivity. We are behind computers more than we are in front of other humans. As we connect digitally, we are losing emotional connections. How can computers and technology advance in ways that support emotional connectivity? Go beyond dating and relationships.
Topic #2: General Philanthropic Business Venture. It doesn’t need to be a B-Corp business. Tell us how you’ll create a business that aligns with the “good” advancement of the human species? Businesses often serve parts of our economy that don’t accelerate us. They facilitate small transactions. Though don’t advance us. What business venture will both teach us good habits and be self-sustaining?
