Women in Tech Scholarship Winner

At PipelineDeals, we are honored to offer an educational Women in Tech Scholarship to women studying in any technology or STEM field. We are grateful to every student who took the time to apply and share their incredible stories and aspirations with us.

We excited to announce that the 2019 Women in Tech Scholarship winner is… Mia Rose Vellon! 

Mia is studying Pure and Applied Mathematics at Stevens Institute of Technology. Her essay really inspired us and we know she has a bright future ahead.

Since I was a little girl, I have had a strong passion for mathematics. Being a woman in STEM comes with its obstacles, which is why it is such an honor to earn the Women in Tech Scholarship. After reading the prompt for the essay, I knew this would be the perfect scholarship for me. I hope to one day use my education and experience to inspire more women to study STEM. 

— Mia Rose Vellon

We are proud to offer this scholarship because we believe we should celebrate and support women who are beginning careers in technology, a field we are a part of as a company.

According to the National Center for Women and Information Technology Women in Tech Scorecard  (NCWIT Scorecard), the percentage of women who hold computing and mathematical jobs aren’t rising and has consistently stayed at about 25 percent for the past 13 years.

Our hope is that this scholarship will continue to encourage young women to pursue careers in computer science, engineering, and technical studies. We want these awesome ladies to realize their dreams and become future leaders in these fields. Here’s more from our CEO, JP Werlin:

“As a software company, we believe it is important we continue to do our part to foster diversity and inclusion in our field of work. By offering this annual scholarship, we aim to motivate and support educational finances for tomorrow’s women leaders.”  

– JP Werlin, CEO and Co-Founder of PipelineDeals

PipelineDeals will continue to strive to empower and support female students in technology and STEM.

Congratulations again to Mia Rose and we thank the rest of the applicants who all submitted impressive applications and essays.

We are ready for next year! Our Committee is now accepting applicants to the 2020 PipelineDeals Women in Tech Scholarship! It will again be a $2,500 Essay Scholarship with a focus on women in the software industry and women in the workplace.
