Quip 2020 Diversity Scholarship

Hey there! I work for Quip, a Salesforce company - every year for the last 5 years we've run a program where we offer a small scholarship for diverse tech students, and I'd love to see some applicants come from this community. Obviously with the pandemic making everyone nervous, we're also seeing our responses lower than normal, which is a bit disappointing. I've worked on prior years directly and can vouch for the impact it can have, and I absolutely love hearing about the applicants every year, it's incredibly inspiring.

If you fit the description please apply (and reach out if you have questions), and if not, please share with your network! Things are crazy, and I'm hoping this could help motivate someone to continue their journey.

Here's the company blurb:

Applications for 2020 Quip Diversity Scholarship are now being accepted. Winners will be invited to a full day of learning and mentorship. Each winner will also receive $5,000 toward their education. For details and eligibility, see our blog post: https://quip.com/blog/2020-quip-diversity-scholarship

Hey, I wondered this too. The blog post on the Quip site says: "The day of learning and mentorship has historically been hosted in San Francisco. Given COVID-19, this may be hosted virtually for the 2020 scholarship winners." Given the state of the situation right now, I think it's safe to assume it'll be remote.

Hello Jesse, I couldn't find any link to an application. I accessed the blog post link you provided but there is no link that directs me to an application form. How can I apply? Thanks!
