LEXINGTON, KY. (Oct. 21, 2015) — In the same month Lexington-based tech company Xooker launched its next-gen mobile app, the company is also investing in the next generation of people by awarding its first college scholarship of $15,000. Xooker will be awarding a $15,000 scholarship each month to one lucky student.
To be eligible, students must be currently enrolled in an accredited college, university or technical school. It’s easy for students to register for the $15,000 scholarship by simply downloading the Xooker app to an Android or iOS device. Students may also earn additional entries through various tasks, like playing the College Scholarship Game of the Day.
“I believe in helping the next generation of the workforce as much as possible,” said Xooker founder Conrad R. Carney II, “whether that is helping offset some of the financial responsibility of school or giving them training opportunities in the business world.”
Xooker has already hired 77 college interns from UK, EKU and BCTC this fall semester. The monthly drawing for a Xooker $15,000 college scholarship is open to any college, university or tech school student who has downloaded or will download the Xooker app on the App Store or on Google Play. By downloading the app, all students are registered for current and future Xooker scholarship drawings.
