Women are currently underrepresented in many STEM-related fields, including computer science.
Despite outnumbering men on college campuses, women earn just 18% of computer science bachelor's degrees. While female representation is improving in certain fields, the number of women studying computer science has actually fallen in recent decades, as women previously earned 37% of computer science degrees in 1984.
In order to change this discrepancy, this scholarship seeks to encourage female students to pursue their ambitions through careers in computer science.
High school juniors and seniors are eligible to apply if they are female and plan to study computer science.
To apply, write about why you are pursuing an education in computer science and what influenced your decision.
