DroneAddicts $500 Drone Scholarship – 2017 Edition
How Drone Technology Can Help in Environmental Problems of the Modern Era – a 2017 Global Contest by DroneAddicts.net for 500 USD Scholarship
Without the desire and passion for improvement, humanity would still be living in the dark ages. Only through sheer will and determination have men and women of science pushed boundaries and limitations and have paved the way to a future of improvement and wonder. This website was built for people to display their passion and appreciation for drones, from both the science of flight with drones in general as well as the mechanical and engineering elements that work together inside each device. Without science, none of these flying devices would exist today, much less so as a hobby for everyday enthusiasts like you and me.
Without a perfectly executed amalgamation of working gears and parts inside each drone, they would never see the light of day, not to mention these marvels being able to go through more and more coordinated and complex flight patterns as times go by. The idea of drones would be nothing but a fantasy object in a science fiction movie without the efforts of the countless men and women of science pushing through the limits of inventions and gadgets around us. Drones being able to act as camera support when filming movies, being used to scout dangerous areas and detect zones unreachable by men on foot, or simply being used as a pastime in the modern era; none of it would be possible without breakthroughs in science.
Here at DroneAddicts, we understand the importance of school for any person’s scientific growth, but we also know the obstacles that plague students wanting to learn. We therefore call upon those students who have a burning desire to absorb all the knowledge that they could in the institution of their choosing, but are having a difficult time meeting the financial demands of the academia. We are proud to open a yearly competition with the goal of helping out young men and women of science in achieving their goals. We offer financial aid that can help students with purchasing their books and school supplies, paying for their dorm room needs like rent, bills, and daily provisions, or the course’s fees in general. We want to help out the best we can to alleviate these concerns, so students can focus on what really matters when they are in school: to learn.
The contest is a simple one. Tell us how you think drones can be used to help improve an environmental factor concerning your local area or the planet as a whole. Impress us with your idea and your passion for drones, and you just might be selected as the winner of this yearly event. The winner gets 500 USD for the school of their choice, which they can use in that institution for whatever purpose they see fit. The deadline will be the 1st December of every year, with one winner being chosen by our staff before February of the next year.
