STEM

In order to diversify STEM fields, it is extremely important that Black scientists get the resources and support they need.

In a competitive field like STEM, Black students can often be left behind. In 2018, Black students earned only 7% of STEM bachelor degrees. This is an issue across the US, largely caused by a lack of support for Black students.

In order to combat this problem, the Cliff T. Wofford scholarship offers support to a student who wishes to pursue a degree in a STEM-related field.

Any Black high school senior or undergraduate student in STEM with a 3.0 GPA or higher may apply for this $1,500 award.
