Women in Technology Scholarship
(Europe)

The 2019 application period is now open. The deadline to apply is Sunday 7 April 2019 at 11:59PM PST.

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.

FAQs

  • 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 13 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 13 May.
  • What is considered a European university?
    Your college or university must be located in a country that is part of the continent of Europe.
  • What is considered a STEM major?
    STEM is an acronym referring to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math; majoring in STEM major means that you will graduate with a degree in one of those aforementioned fields. If you are unsure whether your major falls into this category, please reach out to us to determine eligibility.
