Web host and domain name provider Go Daddy is taking applications for its .ME Scholarship program as of January 7, 2013. The program targets college students with high levels of technology and computer proficiency, and provides a $100,000 college scholarship fund which is shared between 10 prospective students ($10,000 each) to put towards their studies. Applications can be made at the company's GoDaddyScholarship.me website.
Launched in 2010, Go Daddy's scholarship program supports "students who are aspiring entrepreneurs and technologists".

They must also write a 500-word essay that explains how technology or the Internet has assisted them in the past and how they expect it to benefit them in the future.
"Investing in these students is not only good for them, it's great for Go Daddy because we are advancing future technologists for our tech-driven workforce," explained Lane Jarvis, Chief Human Resources Officer at Go Daddy. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2013 and an announcement on who receives scholarships will be made at the end of April 2013.
