Having grown from a small group of friends to the leading Bluetooth beacon provider, Kontakt.io recognizes the importance of technology and making the world a better place now more than ever.
We want to encourage and recognize innovative ways to change the world with IoT. That’s why we’ve created the Kontakt.io IoT Scholarship for high school, undergraduate, and postgraduate students with a passion for technology.
Students who are currently enrolled in the areas of business, marketing, IT, or communications may be extremely interested in this program, but this isn’t a requirement–passion to change the world through technology is enough.
1. General Terms of Participation
To be considered for this scholarship program you will have to research and write an essay between 500-1000 words on the subject:
