STEM Bridge Women Scholarship

About


In keeping with our commitment to support high-performing girls, and in recognition of the extraordinary potential of girls to succeed in STEM, who otherwise would not have an opportunity to receive a high-quality education, we have created the STEM Bridge Women Scholarship. This scholarship program focuses on girls who come from a disadvantaged background, who show strong academic performance, and who demonstrate a passion for STEM.
