Leaders in STEAM are more essential now than ever. While there are many types of experts across many of the technological fields, we need more incentives for budding STEM professionals to continue research, harness leadership skills, and inspire innovation to propel our country toward our technological, medical, and developmental goals. Intertwined with tech are the arts, a way for people to express themselves with or without the spoken word. As a STEM major, students sometimes forget to use their creativity to solve problems. As a researcher, creativity and engaging both hemispheres of the brain is essential to innovation.Today, tech and the arts are some of the most important pieces to our society – they both provide a rigid structure and a unique identity to who we are as humans and what we would like to become in the future.
To encourage leaders in tech or the arts toward their aspirations, this scholarship fund will go towards the SkipSchool Scholarship and will be awarded to one student pursuing a degree in STEM and/or the arts and would like to continue critically engaging both hemispheres of their brain in their studies.
