PALO ALTO, CA – Zillion is excited to announce that Ms. Anjali Sivasothy is the 2023 recipient of the Zillion Women in STEM Scholarship. Ms. Sivasothy will enter Rice University this fall to pursue a degree in engineering or computational mathematics, and her story was a standout among an overwhelming list of highly qualified and impressive applicants. She was selected for her passion for improving housing insecurity for low-income Houston families, and for being a role model to young women interested in STEM.
As an InsurTech focused on embedded insurance, Zillion created the “Zillion Women in STEM Scholarship” to aid and empower women to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The academic scholarship awarded by Zillion is designed to cover a portion of tuition costs for a female student majoring in a STEM discipline at an accredited college or university in the United States.
“Zillion values curiosity, courage, and a dedication to solving problems,” said Adam Black, Managing Director at Zillion. “Ms. Sivasothy has embraced these guiding principles, and we are thrilled to award her with this year’s Zillion Women in STEM Scholarship. All of us at Zillion look forward to seeing her thrive while she further develops her academic talent and actively works to improve housing insecurities in low income areas.”
