ABC Humane Wildlife Academic Scholarship – Women in STEM

At ABC Wildlife, we believe diversity is critical in every scientific field from biology to chemical engineering. While women represent 48% of the American workforce, they make up only 13% of engineering professionals and a mere 7.2% in the field of mechanical engineering. Overall, women are critically underrepresented in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

As a woman-owned corporation operating in a largely male field, we understand the remarkable impact women can have. We want to pave the way for other women pursuing their dreams in the scientific world, which is why ABC Wildlife is introducing a scholarship designed to increase the number of women studying and influencing the future of science, including technology, engineering and math.

Essay Prompt: Why are you passionate about science, technology, engineering, or math, and how will your pursuit of these fields help preserve biodiversity, improve the health of our planet, or alleviate human suffering?

To apply: Please send your essay response in 1000 words or fewer to grants@abcwildlife.com. The subject line of your submission must include “Women in STEM Scholarship.” You do not need to be a United States citizen to apply.

Graduate and undergraduate students enrolling or continuing in STEM fields of study at accredited universities in the 2019-20 academic year are welcome to apply by the July 1, 2019 deadline.
