Rentec Direct is honored to announce a new program to support the academic advancement of students pursuing a degree in computer programming, software development or computer science.
The Tech Mastery Scholarship program from Rentec Direct aims to assist undergraduate and graduate students with achieving their academic dreams and future goals.
“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.
Scholarships like the Tech Mastery Scholarship give students the necessary funding to meet their educational goals. As noted by Chron.com, a study conducted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation found that, working while in college is the number one reason people drop out. However, having a scholarship that pays for an education and living expenses can actually positively influence drop out rates and encourage students to graduate with the degree of their choice. By reducing financial concerns, scholarships can also mean more time for studying and learning, which can lead to better grades and retention of knowledge and increase your chances for continuing on to graduate school.
