The Women Enhancing Technology (WeTech) Qualcomm Global Scholars program is a partnership between the Institute of International Education (IIE) and Qualcomm that invests in young women and future leaders in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) in China.
WeTech believes that providing young women university scholarships for degrees in the STEM sector has tremendous impact on their retention and success rate in their chosen field, at a time when the global tech industry desperately needs more women educated, trained and entering into STEM careers. Combining this financial support with a 6-month structured mentorship program will also enable these women to connect with professionals working in the field who can provide them with valuable advice, guidance, and support to ensure their success as they enter into technical careers after graduation.
The 2018 Qualcomm Global Scholars competition for China is not open at this time. Future program updates will be posted on this webpage, so please check back for additional information.
