2019 Latinos in Tech Scholarship Now Open
Although Latinos represent 28% of the total population in Silicon Valley, only 3% are in the hi-tech workforce. With 39% of the K-12 student population identified as Latino, we anticipate the challenge to continue to grow. The Latinos in Technology Scholarship, established by the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, is available to college juniors and seniors in good standing who are pursuing a college degree in a STEM-related field. This program will give up to 100 Latino students the financial support they need to graduate from college and will support a robust pipeline of Latino professionals in STEM for high tech job opportunities in Silicon Valley.
