What’s new in academic competitions for students.
Posted October 26, 2020 by Joshua neubert
The world of academic competitions is continually evolving. Every year brings new programs to light, and some others shut their doors. There are new deadlines, new rules, and new requirements to keep track of. With thousands of competitions available to students it can be a daunting task to keep up with the dynamic world of academic competitions, even for us. We’re continually searching for new competitions, challenges, prizes, and contests for students at all ages, and keeping in touch with programs to get the latest information on their rules and regulations.
This means we’re also regularly updating the database of information to share with you! To help keep you aware of all of these exciting new opportunities, we’re starting to provide regular updates on the new information we gather in the database.
