Women for STEM

Empowering the next generation of women leaders

Ontario Tech University's Women for STEM program provides opportunities for women students to fulfill their potential in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-based fields.

Women for STEM is built on three pillars to engage and empower women:

  • Mentorship and networking opportunities.
  • Scholarships for women in STEM fields of study.
  • Celebrating the achievements of women as innovators, entrepreneurs and change agents.

    Our goal is to raise $2 million dollars to provide 200 entrance scholarships and 600 in-course scholarships to Ontario Tech students over a 10-year period.

Ontario Tech understands the benefits of supporting women in STEM. Together with our donors, we are providing the tools and support which empower women to succeed in tech and beyond.

“Ontario Tech’s Women for STEM program has allowed me to meet and interact with women who have similar goals and aspirations. I am very excited for the mentorship component of this program. It is uplifting to know that professionals within the industry will be here to give me support and insight into the real world of STEM. On behalf of all the Women for STEM students, thank you to all donors, Council members and mentors for their support and for making this program possible.”
