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

The WiseGeek Women in STEM Scholarship is meant to support and encourage young women to pursue a degree in STEM. This $500 award will help female high school students pay their college tuition.
