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. This scholarship is open to persons who identify as female. 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.

One (1) award of $1,000 will be granted to the top essay submitted, and up to nine other students may receive awards for their submissions. Funds may be used for tuition, academic projects, medical expenses, housing, living expenses, transportation, or other education-related costs. In addition to your essay, please send proof of enrollment and one letter to serve as an academic reference. Both proof of enrollment and the letter of reference are due by July 1, 2019.

This scholarship was created by Urban Wildlife Manager Rebecca Fyffe, an entrepreneur who is unique in her industry as a female business owner, as only 3% of pest control & management firms are owned by women. Fyffe credits her business acumen and cutting edge research-based methods to her STEM background and wishes for more women to have the opportunity to engage STEM programs and science-based education.
