Cognizant Accelerate Diversity Scholarship Program

Cognizant’s Accelerate Diversity scholarship program addresses the conundrum that, while the future has never looked brighter for STEM careers, there is evidence that these exciting careers are failing to attract broad segments of our population.

This unique $5,000 scholarship program is designed from a Cognizant perspective to identify and develop diverse talent for the Future of Work.

Current sophomores or juniors at accredited 4-year colleges are invited to apply, if they are enrolled as a STEM or Business major with a focus on pursuing a career in IT and related business services. Applicants must be citizens or legal permanent residents of the United States, and must be able to demonstrate commitment to the value of diversity.
