Pathable, an event website and mobile conference app developer based in Seattle with offices around the world, is offering its third annual $1,000 scholarship to a female student going into their freshman year of college or a female student who is currently enrolled in a computer science or technology-related degree from an accredited university. The scholarship will be awarded each year in February.

According to the National Center for Women & Information Technology, women earn 57% of all undergraduate degrees, 52% of all math and science undergraduate degrees, 42% of all math and statistics degrees, 40% of all physical science degrees, but only 18% of all computer and information sciences undergraduate degrees.
