Our education and scholarship programs aim to inspire and help students become future leaders by breaking down the barriers that prevent them from entering their respective fields. The Technical Generation Scholarship was established to help aspiring students become leaders in their field of interest. Selected students will receive 2,000 USD for the 2017-2018 school year. Scholarships are available for high school, undergraduate and graduate students. 

At Nerd Advisors, we believe information should be universally accessible. That is why we have a team of researchers and writers who perform in-depth analysis of various products for all consumers. This process involves some or all of the following: hands-on time with the products, speaking to customers, aggregating review data, speaking to industry experts, analyzing specifications from manufacturers and more, for example best ab roller.
