Investing in higher education for the next generation of women engineers
Women in Engineering Empowerment Scholarship
Investing in Future Engineers
Every year, Tacuna Systems is pleased to offer a scholarship opportunity for women pursuing a career in the STEM field.
This program is designed to help encourage diversity in the engineering community, since women are still very much underrepresented in the engineering field today.
