Elevate Women in Technology Scholarship
A $500 grant empowering the next generation of extraordinary women leaders in tech.
About the Scholarship
From shaping our behavior, to shifting our beliefs, to redesigning our interactions, technology is rapidly changing the world. The rise of technology has created a wealth of personal and professional opportunities and the ability to leave a positive dent in the universe.
It’s critical that women be at the forefront of our tech-driven world.
Globally, women are significantly underrepresented in the tech sector. While many factors contribute to the gender imbalance in tech, it’s indisputable that having more women in tech will fuel innovation and lead to better social and business outcomes.
During my career in technology, I’ve benefited from having amazing female leaders who have increased my empathy, compassion, and effectiveness as a leader.
The Elevate Women in Technology Scholarship exists to move the tech industry in the right direction by empowering the next generation of extraordinary women leaders.
Note: Creating your scholarship is easier than you think. You can learn how to start a scholarship here.
The scholarship will be awarded to one high school or university student.

Meet Karen, the 2020 Scholarship Winner
I see design as a vehicle for me to help shape the future in a way that looks, sounds, and feels more diverse and more equitable.
Kara is such a deserving winner of the scholarship. Not only is she passionate and ambitious, but she is one of the most thoughtful people that I’ve encountered in my brief time on this planet.
Karen is pursuing a Master’s degree in Interaction Design at Carnegie Mellon University. She discovered her passion for design while working with an organization to help people climb the socioeconomic ladder.
Karen uses her lens as a first-generation immigrant and woman to inform the perspective she brings to her design practice. She sees design as a vehicle for her to help shape the future in a way that looks, sounds, and feels more diverse and more equitable.
We need more people like Karen in the tech world! I’m so excited about what she will achieve over her career.
