The STEM workforce is known for lacking diversity, both in terms of female representation and racial minority representation.
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) play a part in diversifying the STEM workforce, singlehandedly producing 25% of African American STEM degrees.
This scholarship seeks to boost African American representation in STEM by supporting students interested in studying STEM at HBCUs.
Any African American high school senior who has at least a 2.5 GPA and plans to study STEM at an HBCU may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us about your career goals and why it’s important for you to attend an HBCU.
