In order to achieve our mission of supporting the future of technology, we have established an Experts Exchange scholarship contest for students to showcase their knowledge, passion, and dedication to technology.
At Experts Exchange, we believe in creativity that sparks innovation and makes this a better world to live in. We know that creativity and innovation are within each of us. Some express it through art, some through technology, some through social work, and some find original ways to solve problems in their public and private spheres. We are passionate about supporting the creative genius in all of those in technology, including students, and would love to commend those outstanding students who have a made a difference in the lives of others in some innovative or technological fashion. In order to achieve this, we have established a new Experts Exchange scholarship contest for students to showcase their knowledge, passion, and dedication to technology.
In order to be eligible for the scholarship contest:
- Applicants currently be enrolled in or accepted into a college/university/trade school as an undergraduate or graduate student within the United States as of the application deadline
- Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or hold a valid student visa

In order to enter, students must fill out the contest entry form found here. Once the form is submitted, students will then create a free Basic membership account and submit an original piece of work via an article or video on a technology topic of their choosing to the Experts Exchange website. The work must be helpful in nature, describing and/or solving a specific problem. It is encouraged that the applicants review existing articles and videos on Experts Exchange as examples.
You may submit as many articles and videos as you would like before the contest deadline. Each article or video will be evaluated independently.

The committee of expert judges will gather all applications on the deadline and review their submissions on the Experts Exchange website. The judging will be based on the submission’s creativity, innovation and value to a technology professional. The top ten (10) submissions will be declared finalists and will move on to the Community Voting Period. The finalists will then be judged by the community based upon the number of views, endorsements, and positive comments of their submission received during the Community Voting Period. The top three will be chosen from the finalists.
Please note: The finalists will be required to supply proof of enrollment (or acceptance letter) at a U.S. college, university or trade school. Note: Proof of enrollment can also be print out of registered classes and/or a copy of your transcript. Participants who are selected as finalists must also agree to be highlighted on Experts Exchange and in any press releases showcasing their work.
