Women in STEM Scholarship
We are passionate about building a better world for women and girls. The Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Scholarship is designed to help support women who want a career in these fields. We believe that there should be equal opportunities for women with thriving careers in STEM and access to leadership roles.
