The 2021 application period is now open. The deadline to apply is Thursday 1 April 2021 at 4:00 PM PST. Recipients will be announced in late April.
Palantir launched the Global Impact Scholarship to celebrate and support students from across the globe who are beginning careers in technology. We hope to encourage these students in their computer science, engineering, and technical studies, and celebrate their potential to become leaders in these fields. We especially encourage students from communities that are historically underrepresented in the field of technology to apply.
This year, 10 scholarship recipients will be chosen and invited to a virtual developmental workshop. Programming will include professional development sessions and breakout discussions with our engineers. All recipients will be awarded grants of $5,000 to support their education.
The Global Impact Scholarship is open to students who:
Are undergraduate or master’s students actively enrolled in an accredited university outside of the United States of America during the academic years that the scholarship is awarded i.e. you must be enrolled in both the current (2020-21) and upcoming (2021-22) academic years
