WHO: Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP), a trusted provider of performance delivery solutions with five offices across the U.S., including its headquarters in Folsom, California.
WHAT: Now in its seventh year, VIP’s annual Women in Technology Scholarship (WITS) program awards multiple scholarships of up to $2,500 per recipient to women pursuing a career in computer science, information technology (IT), management information systems, or another related field. Students must be enrolled at, or accepted into, a two or four-year college or university within the United States for the 2014 school year to apply. Candidates will be evaluated on their academic performance, community involvement, leadership qualities, extracurricular activities, and personal essays, which define and offer meaningful solutions to local or statewide IT problems.
WHEN: The deadline to apply for this year’s WITS program has been extended to March 10, 2014.
WHY: An educated workforce is essential to the economic development and growth of our nation. VIP is committed to not only improving educational opportunities for young women, but to investing in the future of the IT industry.
“The number of women currently working in the technology industry is shockingly low,” said Jonna Ward, CEO of VIP. “The WITS program was created to break down those barriers and empower highly-motivated women to achieve their educational goals and progress confidently into their careers.”
