Scholarship Opportunity: Teens On Communication
We’re constantly pushing to be on the edge of upcoming technology and upcoming trends. So we have an active interest in upcoming generations.
We want to help them get where they’re headed. We also want to know what they think – especially about email and other communication technologies. So we’re offering a scholarship.
What We’re Trying To Foster
Technology is developing the world over at quantum speed, it would seem. As it does, communication evolves. These are important issues that impact all of us.
Every generation has its share of bright, creative minds. We want to encourage these minds to think critically about these developments, and to perhaps even spark interest in related fields.
What We Hope To Discover
Today’s teens have grown up in a different world than older generations. Their perspective on communication is going to impact the future of communication technology. And, like we said, we like to be aware of what’s coming up – and of course, share the information here.
To that end, scholarship applicants will answer:
1. How have communication tools and habits changed from your parents’ generation, compared to yours? Has this been a positive, negative or neutral change, and why?
2. How do you think communication tools and habits will change for your children? Will this be a positive, negative or neutral change, and why?
So Share This With College-Bound Friends
All outside-the-box, change-the-round-hole-to-fit-the-square-peg thinkers are encouraged to apply. If you know any of those, let them know.
Now, Let’s Have Some Fun
We’ll find out what teens think when we get their applications in, but for now, how do you think we’ll communicate 50 years in the future?
Here, we’ll go first.
We think we’ll read emails on a Matrix-style projection, and we’ll send them with a swish of our fingers.
