All too often, underrepresented minorities have to work extra hard to gain the same respect / status as a non-minority individual in a similar position.

The Everipedia Tech Titans Diversity Scholarship aims to bring awareness and recognition to these men and women working tirelessly across the globe in search of the truth in science and technology.
