VIP Extends Deadline to Apply for 2014 Women in Technology Scholarship

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.”
