One of our biggest goals is to make the abroad experience accessible and affordable to as many young people as possible, regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic status, culture, background, or identity. We’re proud to offer a partial program scholarship to need-based candidates who reflect these values and wish to help build a more diverse Sage Corps community.

Why Women in Tech?

Despite widespread global discussion and growing initiatives, women are severely underrepresented in tech. Take these statistics into consideration:

  • Women hold a third of all STEM jobs in the United States. Many of these women also report leaving their careers due to limited opportunities and poor company culture.
  • Only 25% of startup founders and 9% of Silicon Valley executives are women despite reports showing that female-led companies perform better and produce better returns.

We’re trying to help bridge the gap by incentivizing more female students to participate in tech internships through our global entrepreneurship program.

How does the scholarship work?

  • Scholarships are awarded a week after each round and can be applied towards our remote and summer abroad programs.
  • Scholarship amounts will vary, but will cap at $1,000 for summer abroad programs and $250 for the remote program. You are only eligible for one Sage Corps scholarship per program.
  • To be eligible, you must receive a formal offer to join our program. You will be considered for the scholarship once you have completed all steps of the admissions process (application, resume, and interview), and after we have sent you an offer.
  • Students who are paying through their university are not eligible for Sage Corps Scholarships and should inquire with their home university for all payment related questions.
