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.
As a way to shift this cultural paradigm, the Rho Brooks Women in STEM Scholarship exists to support and incentivize young women to pursue a degree in STEM. The scholarship, adding to our ongoing list of scholarships to support women and women in STEM in particular, will be awarded to one female high school senior or undergraduate student who will be attending a college or university in the fall of 2021.

We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
