Back at BlackBerry Live, Alicia Keys announced a new full scholarship program for young women entering technical programs in science, technology, engineering, or math. The June 26 deadline for applications is quickly approaching, by which point hopeful students have to submit an essay on how they intend to leave their mark on the world, and provide the usual biographical and academic information. Those that are chosen will have their full four year tuition paid for, provided they're starting their academic career in the 2013 - 2014 year.
Ladies are still woefully underrepresented in the technology sector, so it's great to see BlackBerry trying to balance the scales a bit. Anybody interested in applying can head on over to the BlackBerry Scholars Program page for all of the details.
