At Box, we believe that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success. We’re not only committed to building an incredibly diverse and inclusive company, but also to using our position as technology leaders to ensure our industry reflects those values. We created the Box Diversity Scholarship to ensure that the perspectives of historically underrepresented people are included in the creation of the future through technology by identifying and financially supporting high-potential individuals, particularly those who identify as people of color, women, LGBTQ+, and/or people with disabilities. Box will award five scholarships to support students with a passion for technology including one $20,000 grand-prize scholarship and four additional $4,000 finalist scholarships. Applicants must be studying in a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) or related major, and enrolled in or transferring into a 4-year accredited degree program by Spring 2018. This includes rising college freshman beginning college in Fall 2017 or Spring 2018, exiting college seniors graduating in/after Spring 2018, and community college students who are transferring to a 4-year school by Spring 2018. Applications are due October 2, 2017.
