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 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.

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.
