GIT Scholarships and Awards


Thank you to our members and supporters for helping us successfully achieve one of our Scholarships and Awards (S&A) Program goals. We had over seventy (70) volunteer judges review and score nearly one-hundred and forty (140) applications, with three (3) judges per application. 

GIT scholarships and awards help enrich students’ lives by reducing the financial barriers for those that desire to pursue extracurricular exposure to technology (i.e. camps, books, online courses, certifications, etc.) or higher education for careers in technology and STEM fields (i.e., college or trade school). 

GIT Scholarships and awards are funded through the generous support of Women in Technology (WIT).

Applications are now closed for 2023-2024. 

Higher Education Scholarship

Higher Education Scholarships are intended for girls in 12th grade who reside in the greater Washington, DC area (DMV).  Applicants should be planning to pursue post-high school endeavors involving STEM, either college/university or technical school.

STEM Experience Award

STEM Experience Awards are for girls who would like to pursue further learning or experiences in a STEM related field.  This may include, but is not limited to camps, classes, books, and certifications.  Awards are offered separately to high school and middle school girls.
