Who Can Apply:
- The STEM workforce is known for lacking diversity, both in terms of female representation and racial minority representation.

- Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) play a part in diversifying the STEM workforce, singlehandedly producing 25% of African American STEM degrees.
- This scholarship seeks to boost African American representation in STEM by supporting students interested in studying STEM at HBCUs.
