Scholarship Opportunity: PopTech


PopTech annually brings together 500 diverse thinkers and doers from around the world to share ideas and projects that are shaping the future.

An eclectic and diverse group of speakers come together and illuminate the opposing forces at work in the world today, initiating meaningful conversations that will inform and push participants to think and act in their communities. This year's theme will be "Instigate" and will explore topic areas such as social innovation, science, technology, design, and business.
