ScholarTrips is a national scholarship contest designed to reward creativity and the desire to learn through international travel. This year we will give away six $2,500 scholarships to students who want to study or volunteer abroad. Applicants can enter by answering the question: "What inspires you to travel abroad?" in a short video or 500-word essay and submitting a form in our website. The contest runs from October 10 - November 10, 2016 and is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and District of Columbia, who are at least 14 years of age at the time of application, and are students at a state-accredited high school or trade school, or an accredited university or college at time of entry. Please see website for more details.
While there certainly are differences between the carriers in terms of prices, here is a general breakdown. First, the carriers that offer free data often, very often, don't mention and certainly don't emphasize that the free data they are offering is 2G and not 3G of 4G. 2G speeds are OK for emails, messaging with Whatsapp but certainly not good enough for streaming, browsing (unless you are really patient) using Google Maps or Skyping. In order to have faster speeds, the carriers that offer "free" data are more than happy to sell it to you. Regardless of the carrier, faster data speeds are going to be expensive and typically very expensive.
