Women in Technology Scholarship

The 2021 application period is now closed. Please check back later in the year for more information about the 2022 application period.

We launched the Palantir Women in Technology Scholarship in 2010 to support and celebrate women who are beginning careers in technology. We hope to encourage women to pursue computer science, engineering, and technical studies, and to become leaders in these fields.

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 £5,500 to support their education.


The Women In Technology Scholarship (Europe) is open to students who:

Are undergraduate or Master's students actively enrolled in an accredited European university 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

Are majoring in or plan to major in the fields of Computer Science, Software Engineering, or a closely related technical field

The 2021 application period is now closed. The scholarship recipients selected will be announced in late April 2021. Please check back later in the year for more information about the 2022 application period.
