Women Forward in Technology Scholarship Program

We strongly believe in education and improving diversity within the tech-startup community. Unfortunately, this community has continued to struggle with providing equal opportunity. According to the Census Bureau's latest American Community Survey, women comprise 48% of the U.S. workforce but just 24% of STEM workers. And while women receive over half of the bachelorís degrees awarded in the biological sciences, they receive far fewer in the computer sciences (17.9%), engineering (19.3%), physical sciences (39%) and mathematics (43.1%), per the National Science Foundation.
