Your Support Changes Lives

Your support of ITWomen's Scholarship program can have enormous impact on the futures of girls pursuing tech careers.

In addition to $8,000 in four-year renewable scholarships, ITWomen pairs scholarship recipients with a Female Technology Mentor during their college journey through largely male-dominated programs in IT and Engineering. Then we strive to help scholarship winners find opportunities  for internships and often help them with post-grad job searches.

Your support also contributes to STEM programs to inspire girls still in middle and high school, when early course choices are critical. ITWomen Role Model Speakers and free Robotics Camps open a world of possibilities.

"The ITWomen Foundation Scholarship has served as a mentor in my life, a motivator in times of need, a huge supporter every step of the way, and a way for me to make it through college. My dedication to opportunities and technology would not have been the same, and who I am today, will not have been the same."

- Jovanie Smith, class of 2019, Southern University and A&M College. B.S. Computing Science.
