About Women in Technical Careers (WITC)

Women in Technical Careers is a scholarship program designed to help female students succeed in a technical degree program at Dunwoody College of Technology and launch into a great career.

In general, these jobs deliver higher median wages, greater job security, and more opportunities for advancement than historically female-dominated jobs. Program participants receive a scholarship as well as advising and support services to ensure their success at Dunwoody.

Our Mission:

To empower women to earn technical degrees from Dunwoody College of Technology and eliminate barriers for women to enter and succeed in technical industries.
