Terms and conditions:

The CCNY Tech Scholarship Contest is a chance to win a one-time award of $1,000. To be considered, applicants are required to be enrolled in a college with a designated major in a technology field. The student must attend a college or university within the United States. If the applicant is selected to receive any scholarship award, applicant agrees that any such award will only be used for Qualified Educational Expenses at an Eligible Educational Institution as both terms are defined by the Internal Revenue Code. Such expenses include tuition and fees required to enroll at the institution as well as course related expenses such as fees, books, supplies and equipment required for the courses by the institution. Pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code, scholarship funds cannot be used for room and board, travel, research or equipment or other expenses that are not required for attendance at the institution. To the extent that the scholarship funds are not used for Qualified Educational Expenses at an Eligible Educational Institution, the Applicant agrees to return same to CCNY Tech. No CCNY Tech employee or immediate family member is eligible for the scholarship award. The scholarship will be awarded based upon two equally weighted factors; fifty percent upon eligibility, fifty percent upon number of shares on social media. Each share on LinkedIn and/or Facebook will be awarded a point. The student with the most points will be selected for the award. If there are multiple students with the highest number of points, a random lottery system will be used to select the winner.
