The tech field has been exploding recently and offers many lucrative job opportunities.
Unfortunately, women are still quite underrepresented in all STEM fields, including tech. Despite making up roughly half of the workforce, less than 27% of tech positions are held by women and only 22% of Fortune 500 tech companies have female leaders.
This scholarship aims to support women pursuing STEM so they can find success in their careers and create a more diverse workforce.
Any female-identifying undergraduate student who is pursuing a two or four-year degree and studying STEM may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us why you’re interested in STEM and what your career goals are.

The scholarship award is $3,000 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 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 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.
