Future Scholarship

The 2018 Future Scholarship application period is now closed.

We launched the Palantir Future Scholarship in 2016 to celebrate and support students from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups in STEM who are beginning careers in technology. We hope to encourage these students in their computer science, engineering, and technical studies, and celebrate them becoming future leaders in their field.

This year, 10 scholarship finalists will be chosen and invited to visit our Washington, D.C. office for a full-day, all-expenses paid, developmental workshop. Programming will include professional development sessions, breakouts with our engineers, and some fun social activities! Select finalists are awarded grants of up to $10,000 to support their education.
