We are excited to announce the recipients of our 2022 Diversity in Technology Scholarship, spotlighting the outstanding academic achievements of 38 students in the first of a four-part blog series.
This year, we received a record number of applications, an increase of 38% over 2021! We were honored by the overwhelming response and were inspired by the thoughtful essays, impressive resumes, and acclaimed recommendations we received. These talented students represent an incredibly bright and diverse generation of future innovators, which signifies the importance of scholarships that support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in underrepresented communities.
Celebrating the fifth year of our Women in Technology program and the third year of our Black and Latinx Students in Technology programs, Cadence is proud to contribute these funds as part of our mission to create an inclusive environment that fosters a range of perspectives across the tech industry.
Each awardee is currently pursuing their bachelor’s, master’s, or PhD in a technical field such as computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and electronic engineering. They were selected based on leadership skills, recognition of accomplishments, endorsement from professors, and drive to shape the world of technology.
We cannot wait to see how each of these gifted young leaders makes an impact on technology throughout their academic and professional careers and we look forward to highlighting individual stories in our next blog posts.
Congratulations to this year’s 38 recipients!
