Applications for the Deputy Scholarship Program for Women in Technology are invited. The scholarship is exclusively targeted to female students who are currently pursuing a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in computer science, information systems, computer engineering, business technology administration or a related IT field. Entries are accepted twice a year; Spring and Fall semester.
According to a recent study by the American Association of University Women, women make up over half of the population however, only 13 percent of engineers, 28 percent of software roles and 25 percent of IT positions are held by women. Additionally, over the past 30 years, women completing technology degrees have continued to significantly decline, perpetuating the underrepresentation of women in technology careers. Deputy encourages young women to “lean in” and fill this gender career gap by providing the Deputy Scholarship for Women in Technology to help remove some financial obstacles and enable a passionate female student to dedicate their time to succeeding academically and in their future technology career.
The winning student will receive $1,000.
