  1. Be a female student currently enrolled as an undergraduate or masters student at a university for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Please Note: Students in India are eligible for the US Program but must choose to apply to either US or India Program Adobe India Women-In-Technology Scholarship. Duplicate applications in both programs will be discarded.

Application Process

Applications must include:

  1. A resume
  2. Academic transcripts from your current and/or past institution
  3. Three references (our online application system will request letters from your references via email)
  4. Answers to up to four essay questions, which will be available when we start accepting applications
  5. An optional 60-second video or multimedia submission describing your dream career.


Useful Tips

  • Be concise. Essays should be approximately 200 well-selected words (1-2 single space pages in 12-point font) – this is better than more words with less clarity and poor organization.
  • The review committee will read between the lines. They will look for self-motivation and competence.
  • Emphasize everything from a positive perspective and write in an active, not a passive voice.
  • Demonstrate your thoughts by providing examples; don’t just say that you’re a persistent person, show it.
  • If you faced personal challenges, write it affirmatively, showing your perseverance in academics despite obstacles.
