Scholarship Program

Our 2023/2024 Scholars

Rumeza Scholarship

Rumeza

My ultimate goal is to use my experiences to empower the individuals around me to tap into the potential they have to change the world.

Niyah Scholarship

Niyah

Teaching young girls to code and witnessing their development in STEM continues to inspire me! I hope to continue inspiring other young girls who look like me to pursue STEM!”

Becoming a Hackergal Ambassador enabled me to practice the two things I love most: creating impact and empowering individuals like myself to do the same. The Hackergal community has shown me how success is never a one-man race, and how a strong network is the key to unlocking the doors of any opportunity.

The opportunity to learn from like-minded girls and gain technical skills is how Hackergal sparked my interest in STEM. The opportunity to host a coding club and create themed projects helped me to discover my passion for programming. Each meeting only made me happier to have gone outside my comfort zone and taken this opportunity!
