It’s an exciting day for us here at Hostinger. Being one of the biggest cheap web hosting providers in the world we pride ourselves on helping our customers to succeed. We thought it was time for us to put our money where our mouth is by giving back to the Hostinger community. That’s why today, we’re launching our first annual Hostinger scholarship, an exciting new programme which is designed to kickstart innovation and to encourage entrepreneurship through financial support.
The Hostinger scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship that will be awarded annually to the winner of a short essay competition. The idea is to foster talent and to encourage the entrepreneurs of the future to further their studies.
All of our customers and clients started somewhere, and many of them started out in college dorm rooms or in a classroom. By awarding our annual scholarship to a promising young entrepreneur, we’re paying it forward and helping to grow the thriving community that we’re proud to be a part of.
Best of all, it’s open to anyone that’s enrolled in an associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree or graduate level program – so even if you can’t enter yourself, you almost certainly know someone who can!
It’s simple! We’ll ask you to submit an entry by providing a short, 500-word essay, and those essays will be evaluated by a panel of judges. The winner that we select will win a $1,000 scholarship to help them to pay for their education.
In the spirit of encouraging success and entrepreneurship, we’d like your essay to be on the topic of: How internet entrepreneurs can succeed in a busy marketplace.
If you’re struggling for inspiration, just let us know how you yourself plan to use the internet to further your own career as an entrepreneur. And remember that there are no right or wrong answers!
When you’ve finished your essay, you can send it to us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your essay either within the body of your email, as an attachment or as a link to Google Docs or a similar service. We’ll also need to know some basic information from you including:
Your name (first name and surname)
Your field of study
Your expected graduation year
The deadline for entry is midnight GMT on 31st March 2020. After this point, the entries will be handed to a judging panel of our choice and a winner will be notified and announced on 30th April 2020.
