In an effort to empower students eager to immerse themselves in STEM, StudySoup has announced an offering of a $1000 Women in Technology Scholarship to an outstanding female student who is planning a career in the field of computer science and/or computer programming. StudySoup launched in 2014 as a peer-to-peer learning marketplace.
When we were in school, we found that success in the classroom can be a pretty ambiguous thing. Every class has hours of lectures and dozens of readings. Come midterm time, most students are overwhelmed and have no idea how they should study. Without fail, however, there are always a few top students in the class who know exactly what it takes to be successful. We decided to empower those top students to help their peers, and make money, by posting their best study materials to StudySoup.com.StudySoup
The platform allows students to lighten their financial burden by gathering information from peers rather than expensive textbooks. The studying startup felt it could go further, however, believing “it is our responsibility to foster innovation in the field of technology and help underrepresented students break down barriers.”
