It's widely known that there are far fewer women than men in
computer science, but how can we help reverse that
trend? ComputerScience.org is part of a new initiative to form the
next generation of engineers, developers, and network administrators,
and they are striving to get more women involved.
Because college can be so expensive for women pursuing engineering
degrees, we've collected 20
scholarships available only to women earning computer science
degrees. It's part of a larger resource ComputerScience.org has
created to bring more women into STEM fields.
