Quebec Women Enrolled In These University Programs Can Get Up To $12K In Scholarship Money
Quebec announced new scholarships for women studying tech, as an effort to attract and retain women in fields where they are typically underrepresented, according to a news release from the Office of the Minister of Higher Education.
All women enrolled in a full-time university program in computer science, computer engineering and construction, and electrical, electronic and communications engineering will be eligible for a $3,000 scholarship each year for up to four years — by the end of their studies, this would total $12,000.
