1,000 Dreams Fund + HARMAN present: New Face of Tech Scholarship Program

1,000 Dreams Fund and HARMAN, a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung and leader in consumer electronics and connected technologies for the home, office, and car, partner each year to help fund and fuel the dreams of talented young women in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math).

I hope that when young girls see my face, they know that a career in technology is indeed possible for them.

Chinasa Okolo, New Face of Tech Scholarship Winner

Careers in tech are some of the most rewarding and lucrative, but young women are simply not represented the way they should be. In fact, according to the Women CEOs of the S&P 500 list, women in top leadership roles across American companies hold just 5.2 percent of all CEO positions with continued underrepresentation in tech.

Our New Face of Tech Scholarship Program is 1DF and HARMAN’s ongoing partnership and commitment to funding and spotlighting those inspiring young women with big dreams in STEAM. Our goal is to address the importance of helping women early in their careers, to help level the playing field.

Dinesh Paliwal with 1,000 Dreams Fund Founder and CEO Christie Garton

We are seeing a bold and fearless generation, ready to tackle all the technical and business challenges in front of them. It is incumbent upon us as today’s leaders to encourage and empower them to fulfill their potential.

-Dinesh C. Paliwal, Past President and CEO of HARMAN

Each new edition of our New Face of Tech Scholarship Program includes an invitation to young women to share their dreams in STEAM for the chance to win funding and mentorship from HARMAN executives. Our program launched for the first time in 2017 and was subsequently named a 2017, 2018 and 2019 Shorty Social Good Awards Finalist! So far, over $150,000 has been granted out to inspiring young women in tech from across the country.

Be sure to follow 1DF and HARMAN on social media to be in the know when our next funding challenge launches – or sign up to be a part of the 1DF Student Membership Program! For more information on HARMAN Inspired’s Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives, click here.
