HPCC Systems Community Impact Scholarship
LexisNexis® Risk Solutions has established a scholarship program. As part of their open source initiative, HPCC Systems collaborates with universities and schools to provide opportunities for students to learn big data analytical skills and increase interest in STEM related fields. In support of their commitment to diversity and inclusion, the HPCC Systems Community Impact Scholarship will provide two renewable $5,000 scholarships to female high school seniors or graduates from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds who plan to pursue a STEM undergraduate degree at an eligible Florida, Georgia or South Carolina college.
Applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent), and plan to enroll in fulltime undergraduate study for the first time* at a participating school. Applicants must also self-identify as female and as Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Hispanic or Latino, Asian, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander. Scholarships are renewable for up to three additional years, for a total award of $20,000.
(*Current college undergraduates are not eligible. However, students who participated in college courses in high school may apply.)Apply
