This opportunity comes to us from Kathryn Benson ’13:
We’re thrilled to announce the 3rd annual Quip Diversity Scholarship! Recipients will be invited to visit our office in San Francisco for a full day of learning, mentorship, and meeting the team (all expenses paid) — and they will each receive $5000 toward their education ($1000 for each runner-up).
At Quip, a Salesforce company, we emphasize building a company that prioritizes work-life balance, inclusivity, and diversity. Part of it is culture, part of it is hiring, and part of it is community outreach. By running this scholarship, we’re hoping to have an impact beyond our team and do a small part to encourage students getting started in computer science.
We’re looking for applicants who:
- Are part of a group that has been historically underrepresented in STEM (including but not limited to: Women, African American, LatinX, American Indian, first-generation college students, LGBTQ+, and/or people with disabilities)
- Have demonstrated interest or declaration of studying computer science or a related field.
- Are currently enrolled as an undergraduate or masters student in the U.S. or Canada graduating in 2019 or later.
- We are also accepting applications from students who are currently enrolled in or accepted into a full-time, onsite cohort in one of these coding programs.
If this sounds like you or people you know, please apply or tell them about it! Applications must be received by April 22, 2018.
