The SXSW Interactive scholarship program recognizes individuals from all sectors across the globe who are using new media to push the boundaries of tackling community problems. Nonprofit leaders, grassroots organizers, individual citizens, and civic-minded entrepreneurs are all eligible. We focus on people whose work (whether it's a job, a hobby or volunteer) helps people through technology. For this scholarship, we sought undiscovered creative talents who can use the springboard of SXSW Interactive to make connections in the tech sector. Check out the photos and bios below to meet the community heroes who will be recognized for their good work at SXSW in March in Austin.
