$1,000

Ada Lovelace

Though women now represent 47% of the workforce, as compared to 38% in the 1970s, only 12% of engineers are female. - ComputerScience.org

$10,000

Grace Hopper

Women earned 50.3% of the nation's science and engineering bachelor’s degrees in 2013. However, they receive only 17.9% of the nation's awarded computer science degrees and make up only 25% of the computer and mathematical sciences focused workforce. We need your help giving talented young women the same opportunity to access the exponentially expanding and rewarding field of computer science. -NSF, Science & Engineering Indicators, 2016
