The cost of higher education has dramatically increased in recent years making it harder and harder for college bound students to pay for the college experience. Votacall views this alarming trend as a major problem and as proponents of higher education, we would like to help. Therefore, we established The Annual Votacall Innovate | Communicate College Scholarship Essay Contest . Applicants must submit an essay addressing a technology related topic provided by Votacall. The winning entry will be awarded a $2,000 scholarship by the Votacall Scholarship Committee.
