GoMK Computer Science Scholarship (2017)

GoMK Computer Science Scholarship

Go Mechanical Keyboard is here because programmers built its components. Our site reviews products that programmers use constantly. They are a massive portion of our traffic. We’re thankful for their existence.

In addition, GoMK was created to review the best gaming mechanical keyboards and help those who are on a budget. With our thorough criteria, we ensure the best value for you. Mechanical keyboards used to be quite expensive but now you can get a good one for easily under $100.

With that in mind, it is our pleasure to support students entering computer science programs. University isn’t cheap, and being crippled with debt will only cause performance-degrading stress after graduation. Taking some of the load off, even if it’s a small amount, could mean the difference between exceptional progress and stagnation. GoMK wants the former. Apply for our scholarship. We want to invest in you — our future.
