What is e-Warrior Aspen Capital eScholarship?

Aspen Capital, in partnership with Winona State University, provides the latest mobile devices and technology to Winona State students.

A key component of the partnership established between Aspen Capital and WSU includes Aspen’s commitment to “give back” to the University. Accordingly, Aspen Capital is pleased to provide scholarships for the 2016-2017 e-Warrior Aspen Capital eScholarship events. This year Aspen Capital has generously donated $19,000 enabling us to provide 19 students with a $1,000 scholarship for the e-Warrior: Digital Life & Learning Program. These scholarships will be awarded through our e-Warrior Aspen Capital eScholarship events (formerly called e-Competition).


This Year's Theme

Our Digital Humanity: How has technology changed the way you learn, play, live, create or work?

We want you to show us how technology has changed the way the world works for you. Choose one of the topics and create a laptop skin cover, take a photo, create a video or record an eJingle that shows us how technology has changed the world for you. Be creative!
