With technological advances innovating society, there is currently a high demand for jobs in the engineering field. These trends have contributed to dramatic growth in the number of STEM graduates from colleges and universities across the country. 

Unfortunately, these STEM-related jobs are reputable for having gender, racial, and ethnic disparity within the workforce. Regardless of the increase in qualified candidates, Asian and White men continue to dominate the industry. Hispanic workers, Black people, and women continue to comprise a minority in the STEM workforce. 

To help diversify the occupation, this scholarship will aid 5 African American Women seeking a degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science, or Computer Information Sciences. Each winner will receive $2000 to aid them in their educational journey while obtaining their bachelor's degree. 

To apply, please write an essay articulating a little bit about yourself and how you plan to make a positive impact on the world through your career. Please include what attracted you to pursue a career in computer science.
