Internet2 Inclusivity Scholarship Award Information

The I2I Scholarship focuses resources and attention to improve diversity and inclusion in the community of networking and technical professionals. It provides support for emerging information technology (IT) women professionals to attend Internet2 annual conferences – thereby encouraging their career growth and opportunities in the IT field.

The I2I Steering Committee began providing scholarships to assist attendance at Internet2 events with the 2014 Internet2 Technology Exchange meeting. Since the inception of the I2I Scholarship program, we have been able to sponsor over 40 early-career networking and IT women professionals to attend annual conferences in support of their career development.

  • An individual can either self-nominate or be nominated by a manager/supervisor.
