The scholarship is for a one-time cash award of at least $1000 (minimally).
The #IAm Project is a response to the stark underrepresentation of women of color in STEM. While early exposure to STEM is important,
establishing a healthy, sustainable environment is critical for the female scientists, techies, engineers, & mathematicians already here.
