The Wade Institute of Technology (WIT) is a new STEM college in organization based in Palo Alto. WIT is being organized by Minority Television Project Inc. (MTP), a 35-year-old noncommercial educational entity. MTP owns and operates KMTP TV 33, a public television station licensed by the Federal Communications Commission to serve the San Francisco Bay Area. Our graduate scholarship funding has been provided by MTP which seeks to make transformative changes in the technology ecosystem.
Who are WSP Scholars?
Let’s be blunt: The underrepresentation of African Americans in the STEM ecosystem is a national disgrace. It can only be mitigated or remedied through the transformation of higher education into a more inclusive environment that supports and benefits from the enrichments of diversity. Much of the conversation of diversity and inclusion remains just words. WSP believes talent is universal, opportunity is not. In collaboration with the Stanford School of Engineering, we seek to match talent and opportunities.
WSP scholarships will be awarded only to students who are admitted to any master's degree program in the School of Engineering at Stanford.
