Rentec Direct is pleased to announce that the 2022 Tech Mastery Scholarship is now open. The Tech Mastery Scholarship awards up to four $500 scholarships each year to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a degree in tech.

The Tech Mastery Scholarship will be accepting applications for the 2022 scholarship until April 15, 2022.

The scholarship was founded by Rentec Direct in 2016 as a way to celebrate and encourage those who choose to pursue a career in the technology sector. Rentec Direct wants to honor the value of well-implemented technology, and recognize how a great software or tech idea can make lives easier and daily tasks far more efficient.

“We understand that the investment in knowledge pays the best dividends for the future,” explains Rentec Direct president, Nathan Miller.  “Rentec wants to support the goals and dreams of future technology influencers and we found one of the best ways to do this is to encourage academic achievement through a scholarship program.

What is the Rentec Direct Tech Mastery Scholarship?

We are honored each year to foster a brighter future by supporting outstanding students who are pursuing an education in tech. That is why Rentec Direct founded the Tech Mastery Scholarship in 2016. This scholarship provides up to four $500 scholarships to outstanding college and graduate students pursuing an education in computer science or a closely related field. To date, each year we have awarded some amazing college and graduate students with this honor, and we have been pleased to continue this tradition.
