2018 National STEM Scholarship

#STEMFeminist investing in women pioneers.

Now more than ever, it’s important for young women to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to become leaders in science, technology, engineering, or math. A degree in STEM cannot only prepare women for rewarding careers in these innovative fields but help close the STEM gender gap and provide more equality in the workforce overall.

Scholarships are crucial in supporting young female students with ambitions to study STEM in college. The costs associated with degrees in STEM can be a heavy financial investment, especially for those in underdeveloped communities. Without the help of outside sources, students can struggle to pay for the degree needed to enter into the STEM workforce and lose sight of their dreams.


The time is now for women in STEM.


As active STEM Feminists, our mission is to allow young women to thrive professionally by providing the necessary financial assistance towards any degree program in STEM. Through our 2018 American Woman Scholarship, students can relieve the stress of financial implications and instead focus on their coursework, excel in their degrees, and become our next generation’s leaders.



Goal Amount



Our ambition is strong and voices are loud. We’re working hard to raise funds for our next generation of STEM leaders. Together, we can make this scholarship possible and help up to 14 female high school students receive full-ride scholarships.


Scholarship applications will be available for students in August/September 2018. In the meantime, review our eligibility and qualifications regarding our 2018 American Woman Scholarship.
