DENVER, May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Women make up 46 percent of the Colorado workforce, but are still less than a third of all STEM workers in Colorado. It's projected there will be 1.1 million computing-related job openings nationally by 2024, and there's work to be done to include women in the pipeline.

Galvanize and Colorado Technology Association are teaming up to chip away at that imbalance by offering a full-tuition Women in Technology Scholarship to attend the Galvanize Web Development Immersive program in Colorado.

"Galvanize is excited to continue enabling employers to diversify their engineering teams with top-tier talent from our immersive educational programs. We're honored to partner on this full tuition scholarship with Colorado Technology Association to offer women the opportunity to excel in Colorado's thriving tech landscape," said Al Rosabal, Galvanize's CEO.

Numerous studies have shown the value talent diversity plays in producing greater organizational success. In order to get there, girls and women will need the skills to rise the ranks into leadership positions. The scholarship is an investment by two leading Colorado organizations to build a foundation for our future industry, community and beyond.

"We can't wait any longer to take action on our tech community's commitment to diversity and inclusion," said Kelly Underell, Executive Director of the Colorado Technology Foundation at the Colorado Technology Association. "We are thrilled to partner with Galvanize on this scholarship as one step towards our goal of building a skilled, diverse tech workforce in Colorado."   

The web development immersive is a full-time program that runs for 24 weeks, with the ultimate aim of transforming students into software engineers, full-stack developers, quality assurance engineers, product managers or sales engineers.

To be eligible, applicants need to be accepted into the Galvanize Web Development Immersive in Colorado by May 25 and begin the program in 2018. The application deadline is May 25, 2018, at 5 pm. Learn more and apply: http://bit.ly/CTA-Galvanize-scholarship.
