ABC Humane Wildlife Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Jul 1, 2024

At ABC Wildlife, we believe diversity is critical in every scientific field from biology to chemical engineering.

While women represent 48 percent of the American workforce, they make up only 13 percent of engineering professionals and a mere 7.2 percent in the field of mechanical engineering. Overall, women are critically underrepresented in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

As a woman-owned corporation operating in a largely male field, we understand the remarkable impact women can have. We want to pave the way for other women pursuing their dreams in the scientific world, which is why ABC Wildlife offers a scholarship designed to increase the number of women studying and influencing the future of science, including technology, engineering and math.

Essay Prompt:

Why are you passionate about science, technology, engineering, or math, and how will your pursuit of these fields help preserve biodiversity, improve the health of our planet, or alleviate human suffering?
