We provide scholarships to help high school and college girls, as well as women returning to school, succeed in technology-related fields. By serving students in Middle Tennessee, we foster the growth of female tech talent and positively influence our local workforce.

WiTT partners with area businesses and educational institutions to offer a wide variety of scholarships. Our scholarships encourage and enable recipients to pursue technology-related careers and contribute to our local community of women in tech. To foster that community, we provide local scholarship recipients with the opportunity to join WiTT at no additional cost.
