Scholarship Opportunity for Undergraduate Women

Calling all techie women!


The Center of Excellence for Women in Technology (CEWiT) is proud to announce the Aspirations in Computing Award in recognition of undergraduate women from all disciplines and majors who hope to use technology or computing to advance their careers. Applicants are invited to submit a 500-word essay outlining their future career goals and how they can use technology or computing to make a difference in their chosen field. Applications can be submitted through an online form and are due by December 1, 2013.  Ten women will be selected to receive the $1,000 award. Each winner will be asked to actively engage with the student alliance of CEWiT to promote involvement and success for women in technology on campus or in our outreach programs.  These scholarships are made possible through the generous funding of the IU Women’s Philanthropy Council.


How do I apply?

Applications will be accepted until December 1, 2013. Applicants are asked to submit a 500-word essay that describes their future career that will use computing technology to make a difference in any career setting they choose. We do not require that applicants will have a lot of computing experience at this point – just an “aspiration” about using technology or computing.  To apply for this scholarship, please complete our application form:
