Interested in Supporting Young Women in Technology?

One of the most meaningful ways the WLiT community has made an impact in STEM since 2020 is through scholarship awards to under-represented individuals who aspire to a career in STEM. These scholarships have offset tuition cost at local tech academies for four deserving women to date. With your help, we will continue our mission to launch even more STEM careers. Your donation can be processed securely through the Minnesota Technology Foundation’s GiveMN site here.

The donation process is separate from event registration.  Contributions in any amount are welcome and appreciated. We are more than 1/3 of the way toward this year’s goal of $6000, and we thank you in advance for your consideration.
