(The Hosting News) – Top domain registrar Go Daddy on Monday rolled out plans to provide scholarships to what it called “tech-savvy” college students – asking them to compose 500-word essays on how the internet or technology has helped them excel.
Scholarships will provide $10 thousand per student and will be awarded to just ten.
“Ten thousand dollars can have a significant impact on a student’s future, especially with rising tuition costs,” emphasized company Chief Human Resources Officer Lane Jarvis in a press release. “Investing in these students is not only good for them, it’s great for Go Daddy because we are advancing future technologists for our tech-driven workforce,” Jarvis continued.
The initiative comes as part of the web registrar’s .ME Scholarship program. Go Daddy is set for a big month in February when it will again air Super Bowl ads featuring Danica Patrick concerning the company’s .CO domain.
