Announcing the 2019 Diversity Scholarship winners
It is time! We are happy to announce the recipients of the 2019 Diversity Scholarship!
We're overwhelmed by the incredible applications we received after announcing the scholarship back in March. We were blown away by the thoughtfulness, experiences, achievements, and creativity of the applicants.
There were many well-deserving individuals, which made the selection process especially difficult for us. In the end, we did have to choose five winners and five runner-ups. The individuals below exemplify hard work, perseverance, and potential to make technology a more diverse and inclusive place.
Scholarship winners receive $5,000 towards their education, and an expenses-paid trip to the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco for a day of learning, mentorship, and networking.
