SCHOLARSHIPS

*NEW* 20 SCHOLARSHIP FOR WOMEN EARNING COMPUTER SCIENCE DEGREES.

It’s widely known that there are far fewer women than men in computer science, but how can we help reverse that trend? ComputerScience.org is part of a new initiative to form the next generation of engineers, developers, and network administrators, and we are striving to get more women involved.

Because college can be so expensive for women pursuing engineering degrees, we’ve collected 20 scholarships available only to women earning computer science degrees. It’s part of a larger resource we’ve created to bring more women into STEM fields.
