The essay must cover their answer to the following prompt: “What was the motivation behind you selecting your chosen educational path”?

Behind the Scholarship
The International Scrum Institute understands that college and graduate school tuition has risen dramatically over the past few years. In addition, many people have lost their jobs, leading to a need for workforce retraining. Many people are returning to college to finish degrees that they may have paused in order to work or to raise a family. Today, higher education is needed more than ever to succeed in technology or another related field.
The Institute wants to encourage critical thinking, flexibility, and technical excellence in the students who complete its certification programs. The program will continue to provide an important service to tech professionals in the coming years.
College can be demanding, and the financial burden can be high. This scholarship and others like it are intended to reduce the costs of attending a college or university and to lower the number of student loans that must be taken out.
The International Scrum Institute
The International Scrum Institute is dedicated to educating tech professionals about the Scrum framework, a process of creating solutions for complex workflow problems and communicating needs to employees and clients. The Institute provides certification for Scrum Masters and other users of this system.
