STEM Initiatives

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Initiative Subcommittee

In 2012, the Council launched their inaugural STEM Essay Contest. In creating the contest, the Council’s intention was to award a $5,000 scholarship to a high school junior or senior girl planning to pursue a STEM major at an institution of higher education. Today, the contest continues and the Council has awarded more than $150,000 in scholarships to high school girls.
