Many fields benefit from having a diverse workforce that brings in different perspectives.
Unfortunately, systemic barriers prevent many demographics from being accurately represented in different sectors, especially those that require advanced degrees. Women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ individuals, and first-generation students all face unique obstacles in higher education and the workforce, making support for diverse voices critical.
This scholarship aims to support minority students so they can pursue higher education in STEM.
Any first-generation, BIPOC, female identifying, and/or LGBTQ+ student who is pursuing a degree in STEM may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us why you’re pursuing the degree and why diversity in the workplace is important.
