LGBTQ undergraduate students in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are encouraged to apply for the $1000 college scholarship grant offered by Web Adaptive. The annual scholarship will be available to students seeking to explore upcoming trends in web development technologies.

Web Adaptive will begin offering an annual $1000 college scholarship grant for LGBTQ individuals.

The scholarship application will be open to any LGBTQ undergraduate students in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics [STEM] who are U. S. citizens with a minimum GPA of 2.5 or greater.

Members of this community are often under-represented in the STEM fields, especially computer science.

As an LGBTQ-owned organization, it is goal of Web Adaptive to help correct that problem, and to encourage all members of society to learn basic programming. Through this college scholarship grant, Web Adaptive hopes to help ensure that LGBTQ individuals have equal access and opportunities to excel in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Web Adaptive is a leading web & mobile design/development company based in Baltimore, MD, primarily serving the Baltimore, Frederick, and Washington D.C. areas.

As an LGBTQ-owned and managed company, Web Adaptive understands the importance of diversity in the workplace.

Comprised of a team spanning a diverse group of disciplines, the organization combines their collective knowledge in Computer Science, Biology, Business, and Art to facilitate a holistic approach towards web design and development, and recognizes that web developers and programmers come from all sorts of backgrounds.

It is through this scholarship that Web Adaptive hopes to be able to encourage LGBTQ participation in the STEM fields, while giving back to a community that has fostered the organization's own growth.
