WIT’s Girls in Technology (GIT) program has been featured as a signature program by STEM for Her since it’s inception. GIT's scholarship program, funded by STEM for Her, targets girls in grades 6 to 12 in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia who participate in GIT programs. The scholarships help to enrich lives and reduce the financial barriers for those that desire to pursue college studies in STEM fields.
