Pablo M. Ortiz was a developer and a beloved colleague and friend who passed away too soon last year.

As our world becomes increasingly reliant on technology, students who want to follow in Pablo’s footsteps and become software engineers are critical. Unfortunately, the high costs of college make degrees inaccessible to many students. 

This scholarship seeks to honor Pablo M. Ortiz’s legacy by supporting underrepresented students who are interested in software engineering or computer science.

Any BIPOC undergraduate student who is pursuing a two or four-year degree in software engineering, IT, or computer science may apply for this scholarship. However, students who have volunteering or internship experience are preferred. 

To apply, submit your front-end or back-end developer portfolio.
