The ExpressVPN Future of Privacy Scholarship

The ExpressVPN Future of Privacy Scholarship was created to raise awareness of internet privacy and security. The way we use the internet is shaping the future of our education system. According to new information obtained by ExpressVPN, 99% of classrooms across the U.S. will be equipped with unprotected high-speed broadband by 2018. But this growing connectivity threatens our privacy and makes us increasingly vulnerable to surveillance. As more and more students bring their internet-ready devices to class, awareness of basic online security and a fundamental understanding of privacy rights are more important than ever.
Deadline August 31, 2017.
