Women in Technology Scholarship
(North America)

2018 application period is open. The deadline to apply is 8 July 2018 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 become leaders in the field.

This year, 10 scholarship finalists will be chosen and invited to visit our headquarters in Palo Alto 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 finalists are awarded grants of up to $10,000 to support their education.


The Women In Technology Scholarship (North America) is open to active, full-time undergraduate students who:

Have finished at least one academic year in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) field (rising sophomores, juniors and seniors)

Are enrolled in an accredited U.S., Canadian or Mexican college/university during the academic year that the scholarship is awarded
