    From shaping our behavior, to shifting our beliefs, to redesigning our interactions, technology is rapidly changing the world. The rise of technology has created a wealth of personal and professional opportunities and the ability to leave a positive dent in the universe.  It’s critical that women be at the forefront of our tech-driven world. Globally, women are significantly underrepresented in the tech sector. While many factors contribute to the gender imbalance in tech, it’s indisputable that having more women in tech will fuel innovation and lead to better social and business outcomes. During my career in technology, I've benefited from having amazing female leaders who have increased my empathy, compassion, and effectiveness as a leader.

    "Elevate Women in Technology Scholarship"
    Deadline: 04/01/22
    ($500.00 per Award )
    Despite living in the most prosperous and interconnected time in history, rates of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and suicide are on the rise. In the United States, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death. It kills someone every 12 minutes. What’s our solution to the vast and growing mental health problem? A society that tunes out those who struggle and a broken system that offers addictive pharmaceutical drugs, outdated and inconsistent therapy practices, and understaffed hospitals with mediocre care.

    The Elevate Mental Health Awareness Scholarship is dedicated to my mom, a wonderful woman who taught me the power of authenticity, belief, and compassion.

    My hope is that the scholarship inspires greater awareness about mental health and fuels innovative solutions that help the millions of people who are suffering. When we bring the darkness to light, it will slowly fade. The scholarship is open to students at any educational level and field of study. The only application requirement is that students have personally experienced challenges with mental health or have had people close to them who have experienced mental health challenges. Students applying to the scholarship will be required to write an essay about how their experience with mental health has influenced their beliefs, relationships, and career aspirations. While not required, working or volunteering at organizations that increase mental health awareness, provide mental health support, or research mental health solutions will be a plus on student applications.

    "Prime Mailbox's Women in Stem Scholarship" 
    Deadline: 04/05/22
    ($500.00 Award)
    We live in the information era, where technology underpins so much of our daily lives. Technology influences the way we communicate, learn, and entertain. And it has an increasing influence on key issues like the economy, foreign policy, privacy, healthcare, and more. In order to solve complex problems of the future, the US needs more women entering the science, technology, engineering, and math fields. Gender diversity introduces new perspectives and helps improve the STEM talent pool.  Seeing that women make up nearly half of the US labor market, but only 28% of the STEM workforce is female, there must be significant opportunities for women who are looking to kick start their careers in STEM. The gender gap is even higher in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid tech & engineering jobs.  
     
    This scholarship is open to all women who plan to or are already taking courses toward a STEM degree.
    To apply, please write about "Why you’re passionate about STEM and why you think STEM will prepare you for a successful career."
    Eligibility:
    Female students pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering, or math
     "First Fruits Scholarship Program(Broetje Orchards) 
    Deadline: 04/06/22
    Most of our students are the first in their families to pursue higher education.  For them to be successful, we know it takes more than money. Our scholars program is about accompaniment — connecting with youth and their families, bridging relationships with schools, and building cohorts of students who can be a support to one another.
    Selection Process:
    The FirstFruits Scholars Program is open to children of FirstFruits Farms and FirstFruits Community employees.  We seek to connect with students early in their high school program so that we can build relationships with them and offer guidance as they chart their course for the future. Our orientation program takes prospective students through a series of workshops covering the following topics:  call and purpose; servant leadership; community service; planning and organizing; good decision making. Throughout the scholarship program, we place a high priority on community building — not only are students required to complete community service hours prior to applying for admission into our program, but they commit to community service hours every month during their course of study. The purpose of this community service requirement is less about the activity chosen than it is about the intentional effort made by each student to connect with people outside of their regular school routine.  Over the years, we have learned that the most successful students have built up networks of support, both on and off campus.  As they engage in the community around them, they build supportive relationships and takes these skills and connections with them wherever they go in the future.
