Diversity in engineering is slowly growing, but there is still a long way to go to achieve gender parity and true minority representation.

African American women are at the intersection of racial-based and gender-based oppression in the engineering field. As a result, young Black women may find their college classes in the engineering discipline to be isolating and intimidating, contributing to the continuation of the cycle of underrepresentation.

This scholarship seeks to support Black women who are passionate about breaking into the field of engineering so they can have the resources necessary to complete their education.

Any African American female high school senior or undergraduate student who has at least a 3.0 GPA and is pursuing engineering may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about a Black woman who has inspired you and how that experience will help you achieve your goals.
