Women have made great strides in higher education and the workforce recently. 

However, despite outnumbering men on college campuses, women are still highly underrepresented in fields such as STEM. Women make up just 28% of the STEM workforce and are particularly underrepresented in high-paying sectors such as engineering and architecture, in which women make up just 16.5% of workers. In Maine specifically, men are 2.4 times more likely to work in STEM than women are.

This scholarship aims to support female representation in STEM by supporting female students who are preparing to pursue higher education.

Any female high school student in Maine who will pursue a STEM-related program may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us how you plan to make a positive impact on the world through your career in STEM.
