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.
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 $7,000 to support their education.
