Are you a woman studying computer science or a related technology field in the state of Michigan? If so, you may be eligible to win the Ann Arbor AWC (Association for Women in Computing) Scholarship for Women in Computing. This scholarship is available to both full time and part time students, and can provide you with up to $1,000 to help you fund your education. The deadline varies. You do not necessarily need to be attending college in Ann Arbor, but you do need to be a US citizen or permanent resident studying somewhere in Washtenaw County.
To apply, you will need to write an essay answering three questions for a total of approximately 1,200-1,800 words (each essay should be around 300-600 words total). You must explain why you are excited about working with computers and information technology, and talk about your most fulfilling computer-related experience or project. This can be a school project, but it does not necessarily have to be. It could also be a project that you have carried out on your own (for example, writing a program, designing a website, repairing or building a computer). You must also talk about how the scholarship will help you to achieve your long term career goals.
