SXSW Interactive is proud to announce the 2013 Scholarship program. This program recognizes individuals from all sectors and from anywhere in the world who are using new media to push the boundaries of tackling community problems. Non-profit leaders, grassroots organizers, individual citizens, and civic-minded entrepreneurs are all eligible. We're looking for people whose work (whether it's a job, a hobby or volunteer) helps people through technology.
At SXSW Interactive, we want to find the leaders of the next wave of movers and shakers in the tech industry. For this scholarship, we seek undiscovered creative talents that can use the springboard of SXSW Interactive to make connections in the tech sector. Help us identify the unsung community heroes you admire so that we can recognize their good work at SXSW in March in Austin. Tell us who is using technology or new media to do the most innovative work for good within their community.
We are inviting individuals and / or their supporters to enter 300-word essays by 11:59 PM CT on September 14, 2012. Essays should answer the question, "Who is using technology or new media to do the most innovative work for good within their community?"
If you think you have the answer to that question, check out the scholarship page for more details on how to win a SXSW Interactive 2013 registration for you and your nominee. Good luck!
