The field of STEAM, encompassing science, technology, engineering, arts, and math, is vital to the flourishing of our communities. 

Unfortunately, STEAM fields are often inaccessible to underrepresented minorities and women. As a white and male-dominated industry, STEAM can be daunting to pursue, with college classrooms and internships often feeling isolating and limited diversity resulting in few mentors from minority backgrounds.  

The E.R.I.C.A Scholarship (Ethnic Researchers Innovating Communities through Achievement) aims to support students who are interested in STEAM and are passionate about making a difference in their communities.

Any underrepresented minority high school senior or two or four-year undergraduate female student who is pursuing STEAM and has volunteering experience may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about your inspiration or passion for one of the STEAM fields - science, technology, engineering, arts, or math.
