Women & Hi Tech Awards Book Scholarships

07/19/2020 9:45 AM | Anonymous

In support of our mission to ensure STEM is equally inclusive to all, Women & Hi Tech was excited to partner with the Indianapolis Professional Association (IPA) to award three book scholarships to local, African American women pursuing STEM at the collegiate level. Along with all 15-20 IPA book scholarship recipients, Women & Hi Tech would like to congratulate the following young ladies who are graduates of the Class of 2020, exceptional examples of academic excellence, and therefore, each was selected as a recipient of a $500 IPA/Women & Hi Tech book scholarship as well as a 1-year free membership to Women & Hi Tech. The book scholarships were awarded to students by Women & Hi Tech Past President, Angela B. Freeman, during IPA’s first virtual event that was held yesterday in lieu of its annual Spring Youth Empowerment and Achievement Awards Breakfast. Congratulations again to Lore, Cicely, and Iyonna for pursuing your STEM career aspirations! Women & Hi Tech is excited to support you!
