Tech scholarship for women

May 17. The North Carolina Technology Association has just announced that the Betsy Y. Justus NCTA Founders Scholarship application period is now open for 2017. The Founders Scholarship was established in memory of NCTA’s founding CEO. Following her death in the summer of 2011, NCTA launched this scholarship to support young women in North Carolina who are pursuing an academic and career path in STEM, with an emphasis on technology and engineering.  The deadline to apply is May 31.

Every year, two students are selected to receive the $4,000 scholarship ($1,000 per year) and a personal computer provided by Lenovo. Students meeting the following criteria are eligible to apply for this sponsorship:

  • Rising female college freshman, re-entry or transfer student, enrolling for undergraduate course work at an accredited institution of higher learning located in North Carolina.  Must qualify for North Carolina resident status for tuition purposes.
  • Cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
  • Must declare a technology or engineering major or demonstrated interest in pursuing technology and/ or engineering

The online application is available at www.nctechnology.org and must be received (along with all required documents) by the May 31st deadline for consideration. Scholarship receipts will be notified by June 9th if selected.
