We’re currently running a competition for young writers and want to offer the students of Oklahoma Christian University to join and take a chance to win a scholarship (the theme is Education In 50 Years: A Futurist’s Perspective).
Deadline is February 15, 2015
The HotelsCheap Higher Learning Scholarships are ongoing and are awarded twice annually in the Fall and Spring of each year. Our Spring 2015 Scholarship Award opportunity is now available and accepting student applications now through April 15, 2015 with a scholarship to be awarded in the amount of $1500 USD. Having attended college ourselves, we appreciate the difficulty students face in financing their education, and we recognize the benefits a college degree can provide. That’s why our need-based scholarship rewards students who are looking to better themselves, who have goals and dreams, and who are committed to achieving a college degree. US students who are 16 years of age or older are encouraged to apply for our scholarships. High school students, undergraduate students, master degree students, and adult learners are all encouraged to apply.

How to Win The $1,000 Scholarship:
Free public unsecured Wi-Fi is almost everywhere - in stores, commuter trains, airports, restaurants, and even on planes - but so are the dangers associated with public unsecured Wi-Fi. The best advice for users is not to be lulled in by the convenience of free Wi-Fi. Be skeptical and take your own precautions to secure your computer and information from potential issues. With today’s technology, it’s easier than you think to capture usernames and passwords over unsecured connections.
The purpose of your video is to make people aware of the Wi-Fi Security issues out there and show them how they can keep their devices and information secure while using public Wi-Fi.
