Scholars Programs Aim to Help Underrepresented Communities Pursue Tech Education

Let's close the opportunity gap and create an equitable future

Today, just 29% of tech workers are women, 9% are Hispanic and 8% are African American.At DeVry, we believe in access to higher education for all students. Our NextGen Hispanic, Women+Tech and Future Cyber Defenders Scholars Programs are helping to close the gap and help underrepresented communities pursue tech careers.

Scholars gain access to workshops, hands-on learning opportunities, mentorships and more. With over 7,000 students admitted since 2021, DeVry is helping close the opportunity gap. You are the future. Let’s advance ambition together.
