Scholarships

Our scholarship program, now in its 12th year, encourages and supports women with the interest, aptitude and potential for a successful career in IT. To date, we’ve provided 97 women with scholarships totaling more than $854,000. Retention of women in tech majors in college is below 10 percent in general; among MCWT scholarship winners, that rate is over 90 percent.

 We award a minimum of the following scholarships and grants to women pursuing technology:
 

  • One high school senior at $5,000 annually, renewable for four years
  • One Get IT (Girls Exploring Together - Information Technology) at $5,000, renewal for four years
  • One undergraduate student at $5,000 annually, renewable for three years
  • One graduate-level student at $5,000 annually, renewable for two additional years
