“I would like to be remembered as someone who was not afraid to do what she wanted to do, and as someone who took risks along the way in order to achieve her goals.” Sally Ride

We live in the information era, where technology underpins so much of our daily lives. Technology influences the way we communicate, learn, entertain. And it has an increasing influence on key issues like the economy, foreign policy, privacy, healthcare, and more.

With this drastic boom in tech, innovators in math are needed now more than ever to solve complex problems surrounding tech in order to continue driving the information era forward toward the goals we’ve set for ourselves. 

We can all benefit from having more women entering the math field. Gender diversity introduces new perspectives, enabling us to better solve the complex problems of the future and provide those who have often been overlooked the opportunity to succeed in these fields. 

This scholarship exists as part of our initiative to provide more opportunities for women in STEM. To contribute to a better future for women in math, the Learner Women in Mathematics Scholarship will be awarded to one woman who is pursuing a career in a math-related field and is extremely ambitious about the feats she will accomplish in her career. 

To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a current high school senior who plans to study mathematics or related fields or an undergraduate currently studying in these fields. To apply, please write about what draws you to math and how certain principles in math have shaped your understanding of the world around you.
