Women in STEM make up 27% of the STEM workforce, despite women workers as a whole making up 48% of the workforce. 

Over the past fifty years, efforts have been made to increase female representation in STEM. The efforts have thus far been successful, but now is not the time to let up on this progress. Women are being encouraged to pursue STEM more now than ever before. 

The Young Women in STEM Scholarship looks to encourage the future generation of women in STEM fields, especially those coming from low-income backgrounds. Female high school seniors and undergraduate students that are from a low-income household and are pursuing a degree in STEM can apply. 

To apply, answer a series of short essay questions about yourself and your goals for the future.
