Latinos in Technology Scholarship

Empowering the Next Generation

Although Latinos represent 28% of the total population in Silicon Valley, only 3% are in the high-tech workforce. With 39% of the K-12 student population identified as Latino, we know their talents and perspectives have the potential to transform STEM fields. We seek to do more than level the playing field. We aim to change it.

Supporting Latinos in Tech

The Latinos in Technology Scholarship supports Latino college students in 3 ways: Financial. We financially support third and fourth year Latino students who have declared a major in a STEM-related field at a 4-year university. Professional Development. All of our Latinos in Technology scholars have the opportunity to participate in our Career Launch Academy and Conexiones Mentorship Program to develop themselves as young professionals. Internships. We actively work to pipeline our scholars into summer internship programs with our investors.

Your support will help get more Latinos into the high-tech STEM workforce. The plan is to: Support up to 500 Latino students over the next five (5) years, target rising Latino college juniors and community college transfers, strive to achieve 50% Latina women scholarship awardees, and award scholars up to $10,000 per year for up to three (3) years.


A multitude of ways our scholarship recipients are paving the way for future generations to come.
