VIP Extends Deadline to Apply for 2014 Women in Technology Scholarship

In an effort to accommodate sustained interest in this year’s scholarship, Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP) has extended the deadline to apply for its 2014 Women in Technology Scholarship (WITS) program to March 10, 2014. Now in its seventh year, the program awards multiple scholarships of up to $2,500 per recipient to women pursuing a career in computer science, information technology (IT), management information systems or another related field.

“The number of women currently working in the technology industry is shockingly low,” said Jonna Ward, CEO of VIP. “The WITS program was created to break down those barriers and empower highly-motivated women to achieve their educational goals and progress confidently into their careers.”

Students must be enrolled at, or accepted into, a two or four-year college or university within the United States for the 2014 school year to apply. Candidates will be evaluated on their academic performance, community involvement, leadership qualities, extracurricular activities and personal essays, which define and offer meaningful solutions to local or statewide IT problems.
