Velvetech Scholarship Program

Velvetech team is well aware of the huge expense related to higher education, with many of us having been involved in it ourselves. While tuition at colleges and universities continues to rise, students and their families are often left with significant financial responsibilities to overcome.

To assist students passionate about pursuing a degree in web design or development, Velvetech is proud to sponsor an annual $1,000 college scholarship essay contest. Details about the contest and how to apply are below. Further, our aim is to double this amount for next year’s program.
