About

The Society of Women in Computer Science is a club in the computer science department at the University of Vermont that works to increase gender diversity in computer science both on campus and in the world.

Nation-wide, only about 19% of computer science students are female, and it's even harder to find statistics on the number of non-binary computer science students.

Please consider donating to our scholarship as a simple and actionable way for you to put your money where your mouth is when it comes to gender diversity in computer science.

Diversity in computer science is important, but we can't expect it to happen without work. That's why we have created the Society of Women in Computer Science scholarship for a female or non-binary student studying computer science at UVM who has a financial need.

Costs are often a barrier for people attending college and receiving a scholarship can make the pursuit of a degree a lot less stressful. Additionally, the prospect of receiving a scholarship for computer science will make someone more likely to choose it as a field of study. And that's where you come in!

The money that you send in will make its way straight to the college fund of a female or non-binary student who wants to study computer science but may have financial barriers or feel discouraged by being a minority in the field.

And you can help - thank you!
