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
Pomona College Student and 2017 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.
