The scholarship has a brief submission process, and applicants will be judged on their ability to convey their idea for a useful innovation in MDM technology.

    Students applying must submit an essay where you explain, present, inspire, or otherwise convince us about your great idea for a solution that could help the world with our ever-expanding usage of mobile devices and our collective needs to manage, secure, use and improve them.
