In order to solve complex problems of the future, the US needs more women entering science, technology, engineering, and math fields. Gender diversity introduces new perspectives and helps improve the STEM talent pool.
Across the country, women are largely underrepresented in STEM because they lack support from their peers, colleagues, and mentors.
The Najal Judd Women in STEM Scholarship exists to support and incentivize young women to pursue a degree in STEM. This $500 award will help female students pay their college tuition.
Applicants must write a short essay about the lessons they’ve learned through their journey in STEM. Additionally, applicants must also provide a short video about their goals/ambitions moving forward in STEM.
What's the most important lesson (social, educational, personal, etc.) you have learned thus far in your STEM studies? Please also submit a link to a short video of you talking about your goals.
The application deadline is Feb 28, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 31, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 31, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
