Doteasy Bright Future Scholarship

We use Burnaby, BC-based Doteasy to host Vancouverscape.com. We’re proud to support local businesses and are inspired by their initiatives that directly impact our community.

Last year, Doteasy launched their Bright Future Scholarship to encourage students to experience the value of having a website for their career path. Having your own website is a vital asset for any career—it provides a way to showcase a portfolio and demonstrate key skills for today’s market.

By creating a scholarship that supports three high school graduates not just financially, but with the hosting needed to build a website, Doteasy aims to help students create an online presence that moves them towards their goals.

The scholarship contest is back this year and is open to all Canadian high school seniors.
