A $1,000 Gadgets Scholarship
At SonoBoom, we value education and helping those in need. We also understand that education can be a significant expense and know how difficult it can be for students and their families to make ends meet. Between housing, tuition, books, and school supplies, the cost of attending college or graduate school can easily rise into the tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.
In an effort to make things a little easier for students and their families, we are pleased to be offering an annual $1,000 scholarship to individuals who are currently attending or planning on attending college or graduate school in the near future.
We have created the SonoBoom Gadgets Scholarship for undergraduate and postgraduate students with the passion of “Gadgets” to receive $1,000 award.
The program does not require any specific expertise, and we think that passion for using different modern gadgets is enough to create an interesting and inspiring piece of content on this topic.
