Women in Tech Scholarship program in Bulgaria
We have established three scholarships in Bulgaria to support women in their educational pursuits.
The Women in Tech Scholarship at American University is an annual donation of $12,500 from Progress to be distributed to select Bulgarian female full-time students who have a financial need, with preference given to those studying computer science, information
systems or mathematics and who maintain a GPA of 3.00 or above. Learn more here.
New in 2022: We have expanded our Women in Tech scholarship program to include two new scholarships worth
BGN 3,000 each. Girls in their second, third and fourth years studying computer science, software engineering, informatics, information systems or applied mathematics from accredited universities in Bulgaria are eligible to apply. Deadline to apply
is April 22, 2022. Apply here.
Akanksha Scholarship for Women in STEM
The Progress Software Akanksha Scholarship for Women in STEM in India is a four‐year, $2,000 per-year renewable scholarship to cover tuition, fees and educational expenses for an Indian woman pursuing an undergraduate degree in computer science, software
engineering, IT and/or computer information systems. “Akanksha” is a Sanskrit word that translates to “aspire”—which is a state of mind and spirit to seek progress and accomplish challenges with grit. These are qualities
we look for in our annual recipient, the latest of whom is Akhila Karanam, a second-year student at Keshav Memorial Institute of Technology.
