STEM fields are becoming increasingly popular fields of study in our increasingly scientific and technological world. 

Unfortunately, many sectors of STEM are still lacking in diversity, with Black and Hispanic workers being particularly underrepresented. Just 8% of the STEM workforce is Hispanic and only 9% is Black, despite Hispanic people making up 17% of the general workforce and Black workers holding 11% of all jobs.

This scholarship aims to honor the legacy of William A. Lewis by supporting underrepresented students interested in pursuing careers in mathematics or other STEM fields.

Any BIPOC undergraduate or graduate student who is pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in STEM at an HBCU may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about an obstacle you’ve had to overcome while pursuing higher education and who helped you overcome it.
