Being a woman in IT or STEM can be an uphill battle and often means being the only woman in the room.
Female representation has been slowly increasing in the IT and STEM fields, but the sectors are still largely male-dominated. The first step in supporting gender diversity in the workplace is to make sure that women have the resources they need to afford higher education.
This scholarship seeks to support women who are pursuing degrees and careers in IT or STEM so they have the necessary resources to achieve their dreams.
Any female student pursuing IT or STEM may apply for this exclusive scholarship opportunity.
To apply, tell us about your reasons for pursuing IT or STEM and what obstacles you might face in the process.
Please share your reasons for pursuing a degree in IT or STEM and the obstacles you may encounter along the way.

The winner will be publicly announced on Sep 30, 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 or future 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.
