The Advancing Women in Technology (AWT) Charitable Foundation awards annual scholarships to help women dedicated to furthering their education in the technology field and we are now accepting applications for our 2017 scholarship program.
The purpose of the scholarships is to advance diversity within the technology industry by enhancing the opportunities for women to enter the field through education, personal and professional growth, and the development of mentoring relationships in the technology community. Our scholarship awards are made possible through the generous support of our sponsors, members, and attendance at our forums and events.
Since 2007, the AWT Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships to eligible women. 2017 is targeted to be the strongest yet with a minimum of $5,000 awarded per scholarship recipient! This year’s scholarships will be presented at our Annual Wine Tasting Fundraiser on November 9, 2017.
