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

In order to solve complex problems of the future, the US needs more women entering the science, technology, engineering, and math fields. Gender diversity introduces new perspectives and helps improve the STEM talent pool.

Seeing that women make up nearly half of the US labor market, but only 28% of the STEM workforce is female, there must be significant opportunities for women who are looking to kick start their careers in STEM. The gender gap is even higher in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid tech & engineering jobs.

As a contribution to the solution, the Prime Mailboxes Women in STEM Scholarship exists to encourage incredibly impactful women to continue their pursuit of a STEM degree. 

This scholarship is open to all women who plan to or are already taking courses toward a STEM degree. To apply, please write about why you’re passionate about STEM and why you think STEM will prepare you for a successful career.

Selection Criteria:
Women in STEM, Impact, Vision, Ambition, Community Engagement
