Western Digital is offering scholarships for students pursuing an undergraduate STEM degree.

Western Digital STEM scholarships

We at Western Digital believe in developing people to drive positive change through technology. This includes highlighting how data impacts our society, empowering our employees, and supporting the aspirations of future scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians.

Financial support can be a significant barrier to achieving a degree. However, it should not become a burden for those who have set themselves on the course to achieve their dreams. We stand behind students and are taking an active role in addressing financial support for undergraduate education.

Whether you are studying in the United States, China, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, or Thailand, you could receive a Western Digital scholarship towards your degree. Last year, over 175 students around the globe received a scholarship to support their educational endeavors (see their words of appreciation below).

If you are a college student pursuing a STEM major or know someone who is, visit www.westerndigital.com/scholarships to apply and learn more about our scholarships. Be sure to submit your application by Wednesday, April 3 at 11:59 pm PT.

“With limited words I want to express a mountain of gratitude. I received notice of the award right in the troubling circumstances of trying to close a considerable financial aid gap. To me this support is not only financial, but also emotional as it comes with the message that someone else supports my dreams, my hard work to achieve everything I want in life. As the only person to graduate high school and attend college in my family, my journey has been scary and quite exciting, so I say thank you for helping make it more of the latter.”
