College Prep & Tours

Preparing for college is about more than choosing which classes to take. It’s about developing the skills that will help you succeed in college and life. We believe the more you know about what to expect when you get to college, the better prepared you’ll be to deal with any challenges you might face. From ACT/SAT prep, navigating financial aid, or help with filling out applications, we are are here to help your girl(s) prepare for life after high school.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

One of the biggest barriers in pursuing STEM careers for the girls in our organization are the financial costs of higher education. Tech Sassy Girlz has compiled a list of scholarships and grants that will help fund or offset some of these costs.

Our team of volunteers and mentors are here to assist you and your daughter with finding and applying for these scholarships.
