For generations, women have been taught to be small, quiet, and to take up no space in the world.
Though women have made strong progress in the world, they’re still underrepresented in many fields, such as STEM and the trades. Even though nearly half of US workers are women, only 27% of the STEM workforce is female. In order to rectify this imbalance, women need to be supported throughout their education and careers.
This scholarship seeks to empower and encourage women who are pursuing careers in male-dominated fields and paving the way for the next generation of women.
Any first-generation female student who is an underrepresented minority, such as BIPOC or LGBTQ+ students, and pursuing a male-dominated field, such as STEM, software development, or the trades, may apply for this scholarship.
