IntelliTect Scholars are high school juniors and seniors who are bright, creative, resourceful people passionate about engaging in and solving challenging problems. Additionally, they may or may not have coding experience or be considering a computer science or engineering degree. This scholarship aims to support and invest in the best and brightest potential employees by engaging with them during their educational journey. We are looking for a broad spectrum of people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. IntelliTect gives preference to female and minority applicants, but that is not a requirement to win the scholarship.

Scholarship Application Opens Spring 2023
The scholarship competition has two rounds. After submitting this application, we invited the round one finalists to a gathering in Spokane at IntelliTect. We awarded them a $100 scholarship toward their college education. Then, we selected up to three finalists out of that group to win an additional $400 scholarship and enter a mentor/mentee relationship with an IntelliTect engineer.
Scholarship Career Benefits
The most significant benefit to the recipient is the opportunity to create a long-term relationship and contact with people in the tech industry. IntelliTect can provide guidance and mentorship throughout the student’s college experience. Building a network of professionals can enhance their marketability for their future careers.
