Box Diversity Scholarship 2017

Applications are due Oct. 2, 2017

Introducing the 2017 Box Diversity Scholarship!

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
  • Four additional $4,000 finalist scholarships
