Paving a Path for Women in Technology
It’s no secret that women are underrepresented in the tech industry – and we think it’s time to change that. Here are just a couple of ways we can help you prepare to break into this dynamic field.
We’re awarding up to $10 million in scholarships to help women like you close the opportunity gap in tech. Our Women+Tech Scholarship provides qualifying female students enrolled in an eligible Engineering and Information Sciences (EIS) undergraduate program up to $1,500 per semester in scholarship awards.
Women+Tech Scholars Program
Our Women+Tech Scholars Program is designed to help qualifying female students immerse themselves in the tech industry with early access to internships, job opportunities, a mentor cohort and more.
Change the Future of Tech as a Hispanic Professional
Join like-minded Hispanic, Latino, Latina and LatinX students in our NextGen Hispanic Scholars Program and become a part of a growing community of peers, mentors and professors who are ready to make waves in the tech industry.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Courses
We all have dimensions of diversity that make us unique, and commonalities that connect us. As we work to build a sense of belonging and break down barriers, it’s important to continuously evolve our knowledge and views on diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I).
Our suite of courses focuses on critical topics impacting the business world, such as intercultural communication and DE&I in the workplace. These courses can be completed as electives for qualifying programs or taken on their own.

What is the difference between D&I and DE&I?
Typically, D&I stands for diversity and inclusion, whereas DE&I stands for diversity, equity and inclusion. There are many acronyms used to represent diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, and it is ultimately up to each organization to choose which phrase they want to use.
Why is diversity in college important?
At DeVry, we place a strong focus on diversity, equity and inclusion because we believe that everyone should have a fair chance in pursuing their goals – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation or other differentiators. DE&I not only aims to provide equal opportunities to underrepresented groups, it also creates diversity in backgrounds, experiences and viewpoints, thus leading to more creative, robust and well-rounded conversations and experiences.
How does DeVry support DE&I internally?
At DeVry University, diversity, equity and inclusion are part of our core values. Our colleagues are invited to participate in our DE&I Council as well as grow their knowledge and build community with groups such as our Association of Black Colleagues, EDGE Women’s group, Society of LatinX, working parents group and more.
How does DeVry support DE&I in the community?
At DeVry, our DE&I efforts go beyond the classroom and workplace. We make a concentrated effort to ensure we’ve giving back to underrepresented and underprivileged groups in our local communities by partnering with organizations such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and HeadCount. In addition, we offer our Advantage Academy high school program to give qualifying 11th and 12th grade students in Chicago, IL and Decatur, GA the chance to earn an associate degree in Network Systems Administration or Business.
