Boost Software Announces The PC Health Boost Scholarship Award in Computer Technology

BOSTON, Feb. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Award-winning software solutions provider Boost Software, today announces The PC Health Boost Scholarship Award in Computer Technology. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage college students to develop and use computer skills now to benefit their future careers.

"We believe in empowering computer users, and that includes college and university students who do so the majority of their work on computers," said Founder and CEO Amit Mehta. "Our goal to help college students develop a lifelong relationship with their computer to enhance their career and educational opportunities as well as to find new ways to enhance and develop valuable relationships."

Boost will award two scholarships of $1000 each to two students each year. To enter, students are asked to write a 750-1500 word essay or create a two-minute video on specified topics related to how they use computers in their college career or life. Students must be currently enrolled in college to be eligible. See http://www.pchealthboost.com/blog/pc-healthboost-scholarship-award/ for more details about the topics.

The first deadline is July 31, 2014 for fall semester and awards will be announced the second Monday of August. For spring semester 2015, the deadline is December 1, 2014 and awards will be announced the second Monday of January. The PC HealthBoost scholarship may be used for college tuition, fees, or books.

"With increasing costs of tuition, books, housing, utilities, food, etc., it can be a challenge for students to afford going to college. Many students end up getting loans or using a credit card to cover costs." Taking on debt may be unavoidable to complete an education, but Boost recommends students learn how to avoid harming their credit scores in the process.

The Boost Software Scholarship Committee will review all applications and essays and choose one winner each semester. Winners will receive an email notifying them of their award. Questions about the scholarships can be directed to scholarships@boostsoftware.com
