Women in Technology Scholarship
(Europe)

The 2020 application period is now closed. Please check back in December for the next open application period.

We launched the Palantir Women in Technology Scholarship in 2010 to celebrate and support 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 visit our London 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! All recipients are awarded grants of £5,500 to support their education.

Eligibility

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

Are active, full-time undergraduate or Master's students enrolled in an accredited European college/university during the academic years that the scholarship is awarded, i.e., you must be enrolled in both the current (2019-20) and upcoming (2020-21) academic years

Are majoring in or plan to major in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) fields

Identify as women

Have not been recipients in the past


We iterate on the scholarship eligibility every year, so the above is subject to change.

We recognize that not all European programs follow the same academic structure. If you have any questions about eligibility, please email us.

FAQ's

  • I am a PhD student, can I apply?
    No. At this time, our scholarship program is only open to undergraduate and Master’s students.
  • I am still in secondary school, but have taken enough college units to be in freshman standing. Can I apply?
    No. You need to have graduated secondary school and be actively enrolled full-time in an accredited college or university.
  • I am enrolled in an accredited European university, but am currently studying abroad. Can I apply?
    Yes. However, if selected, you will need to be available to attend the London office visit on 18 May.
  • I am enrolled in an accredited European university, but am currently studying abroad at an accredited U.S., Canadian or Mexican university. Should I apply to the WIT-EU scholarship or the WIT-NA scholarship?
    You should apply to WIT-EU, as the scholarship is based off of the school you will receive your degree from. However, if selected, please note that you will need to be available to attend the London office visit on 18 May.
