CGTrader challenges students to dig into the field of technology by writing an essay on how innovative technologies are transforming our lives for a chance to be one of 3 winners of CGTrader Scholarship 2018.

CGTrader wants to encourage students to think about how life will change when people are confined to weightlessness in limited spaces. What devices will they use? How will their minds and languages change when notions taken for granted like ‘up’ and ‘down’ or ‘day’ and ‘night’ no longer make intuitive sense? How will their environment look, feel, and operate? Will social structures revert to those of our ancestors when people start living in smaller groups, again?

Participation criteria 

If you’re interested in participating, write a 500 -1000 words long essay on “Our life on a spaceship: the future of mankind” and submit it through the online form. To be considered, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:
[1] Minimum 2.5 GPA in the last study period and be able to provide proof of their academic achievements upon the request by the organizer.
[2] High school senior, undergraduate or graduate student at an accredited academic institution and should be able to present proof of status at the request of CGTrader.
[3] Enrolled full-time in an academic institution between January 1, 2018 and August 31, 2018.

Selection process

The review process will begin immediately following the application deadline. Applicants will be judged on the originality, thoughtfulness, clarity and insight presented in the essay. Essays must be solely the work of the entrant. Late applications and plagiarized essays will be automatically disqualified. The winners will be announced January 4, 2019, on the CGTrader blog and notified directly via email provided upon the registration. The best submission will be awarded $2,000 while the two runners-up will receive $500 each.
