LA Tutors 123 Innovation Scholarship 2015-2016 Official Rules
The winning project will be judged on the basis of its creativity, innovation, and user experience. Some of the questions that will guide judges’ selection are the following: Does the project solve a problem, and if so, how persuasively does the applicant present his or her point of view? Does the project aim for originality, or does it repeat what’s already available?
After the 20th of each month, all entries will be reviewed by the panel of three judges.
The applicant of the winning project will receive a one-time scholarship of $500, which may be applied to the following school-related expenses: tuition, fees, books, and on-campus room and board. Scholarship funds are provided by LA Tutors 123 and will be paid via mail to the winning applicant.
