Women make up nearly half of the US labor market, but only 28% of the STEM workforce is female. The gender gap is even higher in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid tech & engineering jobs.

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.
