Scenes from the day of the video interviews of the 2016 ITWomen Scholarship winners. Individual videos will be released in the fall. These interviews are created to be a legacy of inspiration for younger girls who may not have considered pursuing a career in IT or engineering. And for the students, their interviews will be a great addition to their portfolios for future opportunities.

The video project to interview the 7 students awarded ITWomen college scholarships in June of 2015 was initiated by Madisen Farley, an ITWomen member, Citrix intern, and Columbia, Chicago, college student. Thanks to the success of the 2014 ITWomen Celebrity CIO Scholarship Fundraiser, these scholarships were available. The November 19, 2015, ITWomen fundraiser will likewise fund scholarships to be awarded the following June to another amazing group of young women pursuing STEM degrees. As of July, 2015, 84 girls graduating from South Florida high schools received ITWomen scholarships.
