BlackBerry Announces Ten Recipients of Scholar’s Program

The BlackBerry Scholars Program was announced this past May by Alicia Keys and was implemented to award ladies who had a desire to pursue a career in technology. This Tuesday, BlackBerry announced the ten recipients of the scholarship.

The Program is designed to help increase the number of women studying and influencing the future of mobile computing, including Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, and particularly those with an interest and/or aptitude in the mobile computing space. [Source]

Hundreds of people all over the globe submitted applications, and ten lucky ladies were chosen to receive a four year scholarship to the accredited college of their choice.

On behalf of N4BB, I would like to extend my congratulations to the following ten ladies who will be receiving this award. We all wish you the best of luck in your endeavors of higher learning!
