Women for STEM Fund

What is the Women for STEM Fund?

The Women for STEM Fund is an opportunity for women students to fulfill their potential in innovative science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-based fields which currently have the lowest female enrollment at Ontario Tech. 

Over a 10-year period, Women for STEM will provide scholarships to 200 female students in STEM-based areas of study at Ontario Tech, making university education more accessible and allowing students to focus on their studies. Each student will receive a $5,000 named entrance scholarship and $2,000 named in-course scholarships for each of the following three years of their undergraduate degree. In September 2023, we will welcome our fifth cohort of 20 Women for STEM Scholarship recipients.

There are naming opportunities for the Women for STEM entrance and in-course scholarships. Gifts of any amount to the scholarship fund are greatly appreciated. Thanks to the Board of Governors Matching Fund your donation will be matched, until the fund is fully subscribed, doubling the impact of your gift!

Each cohort of Women for STEM award recipients will also be paired with a mentor in their third year. 

Double the impact of your gift. All individual/personal gifts will be matched by the Board of Governors' Matching Fund. Matching fund available until fully subscribed. All donations will receive a charitable tax receipt for original value of gift. Charitable Business Number #85924 8049 RR0001.
