Leaders in STEM are more essential now than ever.
Today, our rapidly shifting technological landscape is leading to many new techniques, setting the stage for the fast progression of our development. Despite fast-growing opportunities in technology, many minorities are heavily underrepresented in the STEM workforce. Despite African Americans and Hispanics making up 11% and 16% of the overall workforce respectively, they only make up 9% and 7% of the STEM workforce.
We can all benefit from having more BIPOC individuals entering the science, technology, engineering, and math fields. Racial diversity introduces new perspectives, enabling us to better solve the complex problems of the future.
To support BIPOC students looking to be future leaders in STEM, the Spring “Future of STEM” Scholarship exists and will be awarded to one underrepresented minority student pursuing or planning to pursue a STEM degree.
Spring believes the future of commerce is social, and Spring is the connection between creators and commerce. We provide powerful tools and services to all creators that enable them to design and sell high-quality, physical and digital products. Spring is a verticalized commerce platform that spans across the entire supply chain; from ideation of a new product idea through delivery to the end customer (including design, customer service, and fulfillment).
With this in mind for your application, please write about a unique technology, design, commodity, or technological service you have an interest in creating/pursuing. Please tell us about the problem you seek to fix with this service and how you plan to turn this vision into a reality.
