Cadence recently announced the recipients of their 2022 Diversity in Technology Scholarship, spotlighting the outstanding academic achievements of 38 student recipients.

This year, Cadence received a record number of applications. The company was inspired by the thoughtful essays, impressive resumes, and acclaimed recommendations from the applicants. These talented students represent an incredibly bright and diverse generation of future innovators, which signifies the importance of scholarships that support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in underrepresented communities.

Celebrating the fifth year of the Cadence Women in Technology program and the third year of the Black Students and Latinx Students in Technology programs, Cadence is proud to contribute these funds as part of their mission to create an inclusive environment that fosters a range of perspectives across the tech industry.

Each awardee is currently pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s, or Ph.D. in a technical field such as computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and electronic engineering. They were selected based on leadership skills, recognition of accomplishments, endorsement from professors, and drive to shape the world of technology.

Cadence believes that each of these gifted young leaders will make an impact on technology throughout their academic and professional careers.
