MENLO PARK, Calif., June 1, 2015 - Delphix, the market leader in Data as a Service, today announced the third-annual Delphix Technology Scholarship for Women, a software development competition for women university students. The scholarship is designed to foster workplace diversity in engineering by encouraging women students to pursue technical degrees. The winner of the scholarship will receive a $5,000 grant to cover costs associated with earning a technical degree such as computer science, mathematics and information technology.
