Who Can Apply:
- STEM fields are becoming increasingly popular fields of study in our increasingly scientific and technological world.
- Unfortunately, many sectors of STEM are still lacking in diversity, with Black and Hispanic workers being particularly underrepresented. Just 8% of the STEM workforce is Hispanic and only 9% is Black, despite Hispanic people making up 17% of the general workforce and Black workers holding 11% of all jobs.
- This scholarship aims to honor the legacy of William A. Lewis by supporting underrepresented students interested in pursuing careers in mathematics or other STEM fields.
- Any BIPOC undergraduate or graduate student who is pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in STEM at an HBCU may apply for this scholarship.
