As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program Mission Possible, LogMeIn’s LastPass – a leader in password management – announced the launch of the ‘LastPass STEM Scholarship Program’, which aims to support students pursuing an education in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) fields.
Through the new program, LastPass will award one graduating high school or current college student $10,000 for tuition and $2,000 for books. Mission Possible supports education and youth programs increasing access to K-12 education, closing the diversity and achievement gap in tech, and providing STEM programs and developing digital skills.
In order to be eligible for the LastPass STEM Scholarship Program applicants must meet the following requirements:
- Students must be high school seniors or currently enrolled in a college or university in the United States.
- Students must be majoring in or planning to major in a STEM field.
- Current GPA must be above a 3.0.
- Applicants must first submit an essay, and those who proceed to the second round will be notified via email to submit a video.
“Our LastPass customers have given us so much over the past ten years – their time, feedback, and trust – that we’ve been inspired to give back by supporting the next generation of tech leaders,” said John Bennett, General Manager, Identity and Access Business at LogMeIn. “A STEM education is critical to helping close the skills gap facing the constantly evolving nature of the security industry. This scholarship is part of our ongoing commitment to improving the future of cybersecurity. And who knows – someday the winner could be a LastPass developer at LogMeIn.”
The deadline for the submission of the application is April 30, 2019, and the winner will be announced in July 2019. For additional information and to apply, click here.
