ExpressVPN Privacy Scholarship

High school students, undergraduates, and graduate students in the United States or United Kingdom are eligible to submit an entry for the ExpressVPN Future of Privacy Scholarship.  Those interested will want to write a 300-400 word essay. The ExpressVPN team has offered a prompt to help you get started.

  • Essay prompt:
    • It’s 2027 and government surveillance on citizens’ internet activities is legal, in force, and widespread. Governments worldwide are watching everything you’re doing. What happens to art, culture, innovation, scientific research, freedom of expression, etc.?

New to the topic of online privacy?  If so I still encourage you to give thought to the prompt and write an essay.  This is a great opportunity for students to share your thoughts on where we’re headed and how privacy, or a lack thereof, will impact our lives in the future.  Just remember to follow the guidelines listed on the ExpressVPN scholarship page to be eligible for an award.  You will want to submit your essay by Thursday, August 31st.  The winners will be announced on Friday, October 13th.  Best of luck!
