- Scholarship Description
To be eligible for the NMOST Advancing Young Women in STEM Scholarship, applicants must: be a high school junior or senior applying for a college program in a STEM discipline, or be a current undergraduate pursing a STEM degree; be a resident of New Mexico or be currently enrolled at a New Mexico college or university; have a 2.5 GPA; and be a young woman (25 or younger) pursing a STEM education and/or career.
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.
