Latinos in Technology Scholarship

Changing the Playing Field in Silicon Valley

The Challenge

Although Latinos represent 28% of the total population in Silicon Valley, only 3% are in the high tech work force. With 39% of the K-12 student population identified as Latino, we anticipate the challenge to continue growing.

The Solution

The Latinos in Technology Scholarship supports Latino college students in 2 ways:
  • Financial. We will financially support Latino students who have declared a major in a STEM related field. 

  • Internships. We will pipeline our scholars into summer internship programs with our investors.

The Plan

Your support will help get more Latinos into the high tech workforce. The plan is to: Support up to 500 Latino students over five (5) years, up to 100 students per year, target rising Latino college juniors, ensure 50% of the scholarships are awarded to women, award scholars up to $10,000 per year for up to three (3) years.
