Computer Science Online Masters Programs Guide – Computer Science Online is a self-funded and non-commercial organization that provides students and lifelong learners with educational, career and developmental information related to the world of computer science. “As you may know, women are greatly under-represented in CS, and we set out to produce a resource that helps address this issue and provides resources and tips for women interested in CS. ” -Dan Schuessler, Co-Founder.
Mentornet – “MentorNet is the award-winning nonprofit e-mentoring network that addresses the retention and success of those in engineering, science and mathematics, particularly but not exclusively women and other underrepresented groups. Founded in 1997, MentorNet provides highly motivated protégés from many of the world’s top colleges and universities with positive, one-on-one, email-based mentoring relationships with mentors from industry and academia.

Affordable Colleges – “Did you know that the average female college graduate from the class of 2008 has only paid off 33% of her student loans compared to her male classmates at 44%? It doesn’t have to be like this. There are options for women in higher education to minimize their loan debt. We want to close this gap by connecting more female students with scholarships and funding which is why our team created our guide to financial aid for women. This guide is a free resource that offers scholarships and financial aid information for all women pursuing higher education and includes specific content for students in traditionally underrepresented fields like STEM and finance as well as often undeserved groups like single mothers and veterans.”
