The Center for Women in Technology

The Center for Women Technology (CWIT) empowers and prepares our scholars to be change agents in creating technology workplaces that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

About Our Program

Build together with a community of learners just like you–students energized by technology, computing, and engineering.

You’re invited to join CWIT, where you will:

  • Receive mentorship from upper-class students, professors, and industry professionals in the computing and engineering communities;
  • Participate in networking and other professional development events;
  • Priority acceptance to live in the CWIT Living Learning Community housing;
  • A CWIT Scholar four-year scholarship and more!

CWIT is closely aligned with the Cyber Scholars Program–interested students may apply to both.

How We Support Our Scholars

The CWIT Scholars Program provides four-year awards, which often cover the greater part of the cost of attendance at UMBC. Scholars will be offered scholarships up to:

$15,000

Per academic year for in-state students

$22,000

Per academic year for out-of-state students

Are You Eligibile For CWIT?

Students of all genders pursuing one of the College of Engineering and Information Technology majors–computer science, information systems, business technology administration (with a technical focus), computer engineering, mechanical engineering, or chemical/biochemical/environmental engineering–are eligible to apply.
