Black women now is your chance! There’s a university out there looking for you and they are giving out money too! Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) in Tallahassee, Fl., wants to give African American women interested in the area of Computer and Information Sciences a chance at a premium education…on them!
Now is the time to jump on the monies given to the school as they will only be accepting 19 black women for scholarships and the deadline isn’t until August 1, 2009. If you win the scholarship, you will be the beneficiary of: monthly seminars on topics related to women in CS/IT, mentoring, tutorial service and academic advisors, preparation for future employment, etc.
The full details are here. Get on board and throw your hat in the ring. And when you get accepted, make sure you write us and let us know. We’ll congratulate you with a story on your progress.
