NMOST Advancing Young Women in STEM Scholarship
May 30, 2022
- Scholarship Description
Women remain underrepresented in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) professions and there is a need to close the gender gap and inspire the next generation of female innovators and leaders. As a way to help address gender inequity in STEM, the New Mexico Out-of-School Time Network (NMOST) has created the Advancing Young Women in STEM Scholarships. NMOST's goal is to give women interested in STEM the opportunity to pursue their passions and interests and work towards closing the gender gap in STEM.
Applicants must be either a high school junior or senior applying for a college program in a STEM discipline OR a current undergraduate pursing a STEM degree, must be residents of New Mexico OR currently enrolled at a New Mexico college or university, be young women (25 or younger) pursing a STEM education and/or career, and have a minimum 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
