STEM fields are booming right now and often offer lucrative opportunities. Unfortunately, many STEM sectors are sorely lacking in diversity. 

Only 9% of STEM workers are Black, and there is a persistent wage gap in STEM, too. The median income for white STEM workers is $70,000 while the median income for Black STEM workers is only $59,000.

This scholarship seeks to honor the legacy of Julia Elizabeth by supporting underrepresented minority students who are planning to pursue a college degree in a STEM-related field.  

Any African American high school student planning to pursue a 2 or 4 year degree in STEM may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us why diversity in STEM is so important to you.
