Jobs in STEM are booming right now as scientific and technological advancements are made more rapidly than ever. 

Unfortunately, the STEM field is still dominated by white and Asian workers, leaving Black and Hispanic communities underrepresented. While 67% of STEM workers are white, only 9% are African American. Certain sectors are even less diverse, such as engineering, made up of 71% white workers and only 5% Black workers.

This scholarship seeks to boost the representation of people of color in the STEM field to create a more diverse and equitable workforce.  

Any African American high school senior or undergraduate student who is pursuing a degree in STEM may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us why you want to pursue STEM and how you hope to help your community with your degree.
