Do you believe that with good technology, people today can still solve hard problems and change the world for the better?
We also believe that the best technology is created by diverse teams. The Palantir Scholarship for Women in Technology serves a population that is currently underrepresented in the field of computer science. Our goal is to help students obtain their technical degrees and learn from women who are already making a difference through technological innovation.
That’s why the Scholarship is more than just a grant. It also provides an opportunity for students to interact with Palantir engineers, to learn about the impact that Palantir is having on the lives of women worldwide, and to discuss what more can be done.
Palantir builds the technology that connects the people who care to the data that matters. Our data fusion platforms are deployed against the most difficult problems facing the world’s most critical institutions: finding missing and exploited children, combatting terrorism, enabling hundreds of thousands of homeowners to avoid foreclosure, preventing the spread of foodborne illness. And this is only the beginning.
The Scholarships range from $1,500 to $10,000. Scholarship finalists will be flown to our headquarters in Palo Alto, California to participate in a two-day workshop with women at Palantir to experience our work, our culture, and the Bay Area. Applications are due December 31, 2013.
