2020 Scholarship Drive
Give the Gift of Hope!

In these difficult times, your support means the world to a deserving girl in South Florida who is finishing her senior year of high school. She will have done the hard work to get accepted into college for a STEM degree in Engineering and Technology.

Her dream is only in reach if she can marshal the financial resources and a supportive network. She may be the first in her family to attend college. The challenges of the gender gap in tech remain huge.

For every $8000 we raise this year, we can provide one girl a four-year renewable college scholarship plus a match with a supportive mentor and access to ITWomen's connected network of female technology professionals.

So with $40,000 raised by December 31st, you will bring inestimable surprise and joy to five very deserving young women this spring.

Please donate today.
