Cadence is thrilled to launch the first installment in our four-part blog series, spotlighting the outstanding recipients of our 2021 Diversity in Technology Scholarship program.
This marks the fourth year for our Women in Technology Scholarship program and the second year for our Latinx and Black Students in Technology Scholarship programs. Because we believe the exchange of diverse experiences and ideas leads to greater innovation and collaboration, we have created these scholarship programs to support underrepresented groups in their pursuit of careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.
We awarded scholarships to 38 brilliant students—a record number! We have selected 22 recipients for our Cadence Women in Technology Scholarship program, and eight recipients each for our Black Students in Technology Scholarship program and Latinx Students in Technology Scholarship program.
Scholarship winners were selected based on their impressive academic achievements, leadership, and drive to shape the world of technology. All recipients are currently pursuing a technology-related degree, such as computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and electronic engineering, and came highly recommended by their professors and advisors.
We are excited to see the huge impact these young leaders will make on the future of technology and look forward to sharing more about their individual journeys in our next three posts.
Congratulations to the 38 recipients of our 2021 Diversity in Technology Scholarships!
