Hello! It's wonderful that you're interested in pursuing a technology-related degree—there are indeed scholarships available for women in tech. I'll outline a few notable ones, but be sure to conduct your own research for even more opportunities.

1. Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Scholarships: SWE offers several scholarships for women pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering, technology, and computer science. Awards range from $1,000 to $15,000 and some are renewable. The application window typically opens in December and closes in February.

2. Women in Technology (WIT) Scholarship: This scholarship is offered by Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP), and the application deadline is usually in March. Female high school seniors enrolled in a technology-related program or planning to pursue a degree in a technology-based field can apply. Awards are around $2,500 for college expenses.

3. National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Aspirations Awards: These awards are aimed at high school women who are passionate about computing and technology. National award recipients receive $10,000, a laptop, trophy, swag, and networking opportunities. There are also regional awards available.

4. Buildium Women in Technology Scholarship: This scholarship awards $2,500 to women pursuing undergraduate or master's degrees in fields related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The application essay should focus on what inspired you to pursue a career in technology.

5. The Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship: This scholarship targets female undergraduate and graduate students planning to study computer science, computer engineering, or a related field. The scholarship awards up to $10,000 and also provides recipients with support and networking opportunities.

These are just a few examples, and there are many more scholarships tailored for women in technology-related fields. I would recommend checking out websites such as Scholarships.com, Cappex, and CollegeVine for more opportunities. Be sure to start applying early and keep track of deadlines. Good luck!
