Women in Technology



The Women in Technology Scholarship is now part of the BBB Foundation’s Student of Integrity Scholarships.

The Denver Biz Tech Expo Young Women’s Technology Scholarship was created in 2013 to assist and motivate Denver High School Seniors to pursue a degree in technology. The technology industry in the United States is growing rapidly and the disparity of men to women working in the field is getting wider.  There is a great need for more educated and certified professional women in this field. We welcome all applicants pursuing any degree related to technology which can include business, marketing, sales, engineering, design, graphic art, etc.; it’s does not need to be solely focused on Information Technology, Computer Science, or Computer Engineering to be considered for this award.

Application Guidelines:
This 2015 Denver Biz Tech Expo Women In Technology Scholarship is open to students graduating from a Denver area high school in the spring of 2016 who intend to pursue a degree at a two year or four year college or university in the United States. We will award a minimum $1,000 scholarship to at least one young woman on October 15, 2015 at our Denver Biz Tech Expo at Wings Over the Rockies Museum in Lowry.
