SanDisk Scholars Fund

The SanDisk Scholars Fund supports the educational goals of women, Latino and African-American students pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Scholarships of up to $10,000 per student will be awarded to graduating high school seniors, community-college students, or students already enrolled in a STEM-related course of study.


The fund targets students who have the academic promise to attend college and require the economic assistance to pursue careers in STEM-related fields. Helping talented and qualified students obtain university degrees in science, engineering and technology leads to growth in the technology industry and increases the overall competitiveness of the U.S.

Of the $1 million committed for this year, a portion of SanDisk’s Scholar Fund is committed to students attending one of these five U.S. universities: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles and University of Texas-Austin. Funding for STEM-related research grants is also planned and included in this amount.
