While strides have been made to increase diversity within STEM career fields, there is still a long way to go.

African Americans comprise only 9% of the STEM workforce despite making up 13% of the overall U.S. workforce. To help close that divide and encourage the next generation of great minds in STEM, the Delon Hampton & Associates African Americans in STEM Scholarship seeks to support African American students as they pursue careers in their desired STEM field. 

High school seniors and undergraduate African American students who are US citizens are eligible to apply if they have a 3.0 GPA or higher and are pursuing a degree in STEM (non-medical). Preference will be given to students studying civil or structural engineering, water resource engineering, program & construction management, electrical & computer engineering, industrial engineering.

To apply, write about yourself and how you have demonstrated leadership, what your goals are through your education in STEM and how you plan to use that as a way to make a positive impact on the world.

Selection Criteria:
Academic performance, Demonstrated leadership, Participation in school and community activities
