About the ExpressVPN scholarship
As internet-ready devices proliferate in classrooms worldwide, so do threats to the privacy of the individuals who use them.
Students are taking notice, and they’re often the most savvy users of these technologies, so it makes good sense to get their take on emerging trends in technology that affect them.
That’s why we created the ExpressVPN Future of Privacy Scholarship. Through an annual essay competition, students delve into urgent issues of the digital age, with the chance to win cash and other prizes.
With the Covid-19 pandemic presenting an ongoing challenge for countries to control and mitigate, debate has also grown over how countries should balance the needs of public health with that of individual privacy, if at all.
Students have been particularly affected by the pandemic, whether navigating their education online through Zoom classes or in physical classrooms with invasive surveillance measures where schools have reopened. To add to the woes, they’ve also had to forgo important life events, from graduation ceremonies to the trappings of university life.
ExpressVPN wants to give students a platform to reflect on their experiences and how they should translate to real policy.
