Are you a woman pursuing a degree to help you become an engineer, mathematician, software developer, researcher or another STEM job? PayScale wants to help you achieve your goals. Apply for our Women in STEM Scholarship by completing the online form below and tell us why you deserve this award.
PayScale knows that one of the most effective ways to close the gender wage gap is to encourage and support more women pursuing careers in the high-paying, male-dominated STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields. In order to help make that happen, we are pleased to announce the first-ever PayScale Scholarship. This year we will award a scholarship of $2,000 to help support the educational goals of one exceptional woman actively pursuing an associate, bachelor’s or graduate degree in a STEM field.
Who Can Apply: The annual scholarship award is for one (1) female student enrolled in an associate, bachelor’s or graduate level program in a science, technology, engineering or math related major. The applicant must have accepted an offer of admission or be attending classes at an accredited college or university before the award is granted.
Submission: Applicants must complete the official application, which includes a 300- to 500-word essay on the selected topic and agree to terms of the Official Scholarship Award Agreement on the last section of the application.
Deadline: February 29, 2016
