Supporting young women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math careers

Three high school female students will start their college education in engineering with some financial help from Women of Teradata, an employee group of Teradata (NYSE: TDC) the leading analytic data platforms, applications and services company.

Recipients of the college scholarships were selected based on scholastic achievement, community service, financial need and demonstrated leadership potential. Women of Teradata members raised funds and made personal donations to fund the scholarships for female students pursuing careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering or mathematics. Scholarship applicants were all graduating high school women in a community where Teradata has an office.  The school scholarships are awarded for the 2014-2015 academic year.
"These young women have already started preparing for their careers through their involvement in our FIRST Robotics teams. We expect and wish them every success as they pursue their college educations in engineering disciplines," said Women of Teradata President Kathy Edmons.
