As an NJ-based web design company specializing in custom web and app development, we see first-hand how web design and development is is a male-dominated field.

According to the nonprofit, Girls Who Code, only 24 percent of computer scientists are female, and that number is in jeopardy of shrinking. To help close the gender gap in technology, Lform Design (http://www.lform.com) —a full-service digital agency specializing in web design, app development, corporate branding, and digital marketing—is launching a scholarship program for young women pursuing a career in computer science or engineering. This annual $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to one rising or currently enrolled female college student.
“As an NJ-based web design company specializing in custom web and app development, we love what we do—and feel lucky to be a part of this community,” said Lform Design Owner and Creative Director Ian Loew. “But, with only one female in our office, we see first-hand how web design and development is a male-dominated field. Because we want both men and women to thrive in this line of work equally, we’ve created an annual scholarship to encourage more female coders and computer scientists to join the computing workforce.”
Eligibility includes a commitment to pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in computer science or computer engineering; the student must also be enrolling or currently enrolled in an accredited four-year college or university or two-year college on track to transfer to a four-year school. The selection committee consists of the Lform team. The deadline to apply is May 31, 2018 and the scholarship recipient will be announced June 15, 2018.
“We hope that our $1,000 financial aid scholarship can give a leg up to motivated young women and help them succeed with flying colors,” Loew said.
