Aspen Capital Company has financed the WSU e-Warrior: Digital Life & Learning Program since 2000. Their programs have helped to insure that every WSU student has access to state-of-the-art technology, to include comprehensive service and support, accidental damage protection, and periodic upgrades.

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 four (4) $1000 (one thousand dollar) scholarships for the 2013-2014 e-Warrior e-Flick Competition event. This means that if you have a team of one, two, three or four students you would each get a $1,000.00 scholarship.
