Digital Media Academy Made by GirlsIn an effort to further its mission to help girls reach their fullest potential through an introduction to technology, Digital Media Academy (DMA) has launched the Made by Girls Scholarship program.

DMA invites young women ages 8-17 who are interested in using technology to express their creativity and build a better world to apply for one of five scholarships available, each providing admission to the Made by Girls (MBG) course of their choosing, worth up to $1,385.00.

Scholarship applicants are asked to finish the prompt “I want to join Made by Girls because…” encouraging them to express their creativity and personality through their choice to either write an essay (minimum length: 500 words) or submit a short video (maximum length: 90 seconds) to apply.

“The mission of DMA’s Made by Girls program goes beyond empowering young women to excel in the tech industry,” says Peggy Lee, Director of the Made by Girls initiative at DMA. “Having a positive experience in STEM at an early age introduces girls to more opportunities beyond tech into medicine, fashion and music, and gives them the skills and confidence to reach their goals.”

Submissions will be accepted through March 31st and 5 winners will be selected by DMA and announced on May 16th. Winners will have access to their choice of all 4 Made by Girls courses at any of 20 locations this summer. Courses include: Wearable Tech & Fashion Design, Adventures in Programming, App Development for iPhone & iPad, and Programming with Java. The scholarship covers the entire cost of tuition and the option to include two additional e-learning modules of their choice.
