Scholarships for aspiring female coders?

What's up, I'm a junior girl super into coding and I heard there might be specific scholarships for girls in computer science. Has anyone got information on this? Trying to find ways to pay for college without breaking the bank.

Hi there! It's awesome to hear that you're passionate about coding. You're right, there are scholarships out there specifically for young women pursuing computer science. Here are a few to consider:

1. NCWIT Aspirations in Computing (AiC) Award: Recognizes high school female students interested in computing and technology. Winners receive various prizes, including scholarships.

2. The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Scholarship: Offers scholarships for women pursuing degrees in engineering, computer science, or engineering technology. You'll be applying during your senior year in high school for this one.

3. Women Techmakers Scholars Program: Formerly the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship, this program aims to encourage women entering the tech field. Selected scholars receive a cash award for their studies.

Make sure to check each scholarship's eligibility criteria, deadlines, and application process. Also don't hesitate to look into local scholarships or school-specific scholarships. Good luck with your search, and I hope you find the financial support you need for your college journey!
