Women for STEM Fund

What is the Women for STEM Fund?

The Women for STEM Fund is an opportunity for women students to fulfil their potential in innovative science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-based fields and to inspire and celebrate women as innovators, entrepreneurs and change agents.

The goal for our first year is to create a $100,000 expendable fund to offer 20 new entrance scholarships valued at $5,000 each, for women students in STEM disciplines at our university.

Donors can name funds within the Women for Women Fund for expendable gifts of $5,000 or more. The Board of Governors Matching Fund will match all donations of $5,000 or more until the fund is fully subscribed.

The 20 Women for STEM award recipients will also be paired with a senior mentor in their first year. The mentorship portion of the program will provide a variety of opportunities for students to receive encouragement and support throughout their university years.
