Earlier this year, Hotspot Shield VPN gave away $50,000 USD in scholarship prizes plus 1-year subscription of Hotspot Shield Elite VPN to 10 lucky students. Universities and colleges all over the US and UK competed for the title of “most online security saavy school.” To increase their chances of winning, students had to invite their classmates to use Hotspot Shield on their computers and mobile devices.
The winners were selected by random from the overall giveaway entrants and from the top 3 leading schools that had the most downloads of Hotspot Shield VPN. The top 3 winning schools were: Arizona State University, University of Michigan and University of Florida. Each winner received $5,000 USD.
Congratulations to our Hotspot Shield VPN Scholarship Winners!
