EDU Tech Scholarship
Inspired by the efforts of BlackGirlsCode.com
and their mission: To increase the number of women of color
in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of
their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology. To provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the
1.4 millions computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 2020, and to train 1 million girls by 2040. This scholarship is to continue support
for those African American women into collegiate levels at Virginia Commonwealth University.
