Representation in fields such as STEM has gained awareness in recent years, and it’s important to encourage young, indigenous women to make their mark in whatever career they choose.
STEM fields have historically underrepresented women and minorities, so the Indigenous Women in STEM Scholarship looks to encourage the future of indigenous female STEM students. High school seniors or undergraduate students may apply if their major is in the STEM field. This scholarship is specifically for female students who have an affiliation with an indigenous tribe.
To apply, write about how you will give back to your community once you’ve achieved your STEM degree.
