|Oracle is a Silver Sponsor of BDPA. Oracle knows talented individuals drive success, and they are willing to encourage positive workforce development through organizations such as BDPA. As such, Oracle made the decision to offer the 9th Annual Oracle Scholarship for BDPA Students – https://www.slideshare.net/BDPAFoundation/oracle-scholarship-for-bdpa-students – again this year. The winning scholars will be announced at the 2017 BDPA Scholarship Breakfast on July 28 in Cincinnati, OH.
These scholarships are available to high school students (grade 12), community college students and undergraduate college students. The student must be studying in a STEM-related curriculum. The student must also be a BDPA member in good standing on or before July 1, 2017. BDPA student membership is $25 annually.
Past Oracle scholars were helped by this funding as well as the BDPA programs and services made available to them at the local chapter level. The next step is yours! Do you know anyone at Chicago Public Schools who might be interested in this college scholarship? The completed application must be received on or before Saturday, July 1, 2017.

For 40 years, BDPA has enabled the upward mobility of African Americans and other minorities in the Information Technology (IT) and STEM fields. Through its 40+ local community chapters in major cities across the United States, BDPA has been at the forefront of promoting the minority agenda within the IT profession since 1975. BDPA has been a leader and pioneer in technology and STEM training for IT professionals and High School students since 1986. Our National High School Computer Competition (HSCC) program which is a hands-on training program, has introduced tens of thousands of high school students to coding and application development while also presenting opportunities for students to obtain college scholarships due to the generosity of our sponsors and partners. Because of BDPA’s focus on students and professional members alike, we continue to support and lead the upward success of our members “from the classroom to the boardroom”.
