That’s why LastPass and LogMeIn’s corporate social responsibility program, Mission Possible, have partnered to launch the LastPass STEM Scholarship. High school seniors and currently enrolled college students studying or intending to study STEM fields are eligible to win $10,000 towards tuition and $2,000 towards books. The application and details can be found here. 

For any students attending or who will be attending a U.S. college or university, please apply before the April 30th deadline. We want to hear your thoughts on the future of cybersecurity, so check out the essay topic below.  

If you work at a college or university, please promote the scholarship application on your website, share it on your social media accounts and email relevant departments. This is a great opportunity for your STEM students to earn money for tuition and share their take on the future of the cybersecurity industry.
