New Women in STEM Scholarship

  • Description: 

    Technology has come to impact almost every facet of our lives. It has become a driver for innovation and unlocked so many new career paths. Unfortunately a significant gender gap persists.

    While women make up almost 50% of the labor market, they hold only 28% of STEM jobs. Minority women are even less represented in STEM, making up just 1 out of every 20 scientist and engineer jobs.

    Prime Mailboxes is hoping to inspire more young women to consider a STEM career. The Prime Mailbox Women in STEM Scholarship will award $675 to female students who are passionate about science, technology, engineering, or math.

    Award Amount: $675
