Women In Technical Careers: A Scholarship Program

Women in Technical Careers is a scholarship program designed to help women students succeed in a technical degree program at Dunwoody College of Technology and launch into a great career.

Most careers requiring a technical degree are non-traditional for women (defined by federal law as employing fewer than 25 percent women nationwide). Those same careers deliver higher median wages, greater job security, and more opportunities for advancement than historically female-dominated professions.

Our mission is to empower women to earn technical degrees from Dunwoody College of Technology and eliminate barriers for women to enter and succeed in technical industries.
