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.
The application deadline is Jun 20, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jul 20, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 20, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
