Gatekeeper Scholarship

AI, Automation and the Future of Work

University Scholarship

Our Scholarship

Gatekeeper is an AI-driven contract management solution, helping businesses gain maximum value from their contract and vendor relationships.

Gatekeeper uses AI and automation to help companies manage the large volume of work and data associated with their contracts. By automating processes, Gatekeeper helps businesses work more efficiently, while helping them maintain compliance and minimise costs and risks.

However, in a world of increasing automation there is growing uncertainty about its impact on employment and how the world of work will change.

This is why we want to hear from today’s brightest student minds about what they think the world of work will look like for them and what skills in particular will be important for their future.

At Gatekeeper, we want to understand what today’s students expect the future to look like and to help support learning with our scholarship.
