BDPA Education and Technology Foundation - Eli Lilly Scholarship

Organization & Scholarship Overview:
BDPA Education & Technology Foundation’s Scholarships Program supports development of the best and brightest future information technology professionals worldwide through learning opportunities. We established our scholarship program to stimulate the interest of young people in the fields of science and technology, areas where youth from underserved communities are seriously underrepresented. Lilly/BDPA Scholars will be awarded a one-time $4,000 scholarship that may be used to pursue an Information Technology focused degree at an accredited four-year college/university of their choice. The Lilly/BDPA scholarship may be used to supplement benefits from the college/university that the student is attending or plans to attend as well as fellowships from other foundations or organizations. Students may use the scholarship to cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, room and board, and other college-related expenses.
