As part of our commitment to break down barriers that prevent underrepresented women in our industry from attending the EWF Annual conference we have established  scholarships. Scholarship recipients will receive a full conference pass to the 2020 EWF Virtual Conference giving them access to the 3 day programming including any pre/post sessions, on-demand recording library and the conference platform and app.

Eligibility

- Must identify as but not limited to women of color(African American, Black, Native American, Alaska Native, Latina, Hispanic, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander), LGBTIQA+ community, Veteran and any historically underrepresented groups in the field of technology
- Permission for the EWF to list scholarship recipient information on website including but not limited to name and organization. (If you wish to remain private, we will list title and state only.)
- Not an undergraduate student
- Must at least be able to attend the conference, October 20-22, 2020

The strongest candidates:

- Will demonstrate financial need an/or barrier to access
- Can demonstrate how their past and/or current work or life experiences have shaped their desire to enter our field
- Can demonstrate how attending EWF Virtual Conference will have a positive impact on their career trajectories in tech and/or their communities.
- Special consideration will be given to candidates who: Have submitted a proposal for the conference program; Are first-time conference attendee; Current EWF Member

Additional Information about Scholarships:

- If your company is a Sponsor or Partner organization, please contact your manager for available opportunities to attend EWF 2020 Virtual Conference.
- I am a woman in our field, but do not identify as any of the racial/ethnic groups listed. Can I still apply for the scholarship? At this time, given the limited amount of complimentary registrations available, we are focusing on specific groups that are both under-tapped in our industry and at the EWF Annual Conference. In the future we hope to expand to include additional groups that are under-tapped in the tech industry.
 
The award of any scholarship is in EWF’s discretion. No cash equivalents are available. Scholarships are not transferable. EWF has the right to revoke scholarships if we discover incorrect or misleading information was provided by the recipient.

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT IS SEPTEMBER 30, 2020!
