DeVry Scholars Programs1

Our Scholars programs are designed to help support individuals continue on with their development and learning by providing close-knit communities of like-minded students and mentors.

  • Women+Tech Scholars Program. Women remain vastly underrepresented in tech careers2, and our program is designed to help them meet and overcome the challenges they will face. Qualifying female-identifying students in a qualifying tech program at any level (certificate, associate or bachelor’s degree3) are invited to join. Benefits include mentorships, leadership development programs, an automatic enrollment in CompTIA Basic Student Membership and early access to internships and job opportunities.

  • NextGen Hispanic Scholars Program. Hispanic students are also quite underrepresented in STEM fields4, and our programs seeks to help close the gap.

Benefits include mentorships, leadership training, early access to job opportunities and automatic enrollment in CompTIA Basic Student Membership.
