Talent is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not.
STEM fields are at the forefront of some of the most exciting, world-defining innovations, and jobs in STEM fields are growing faster than any other sector.
Although African-Americans comprise 13.4% of the US population, they receive just 2% of research grants. Across every STEM field, the Black community is underrepresented.
Aside from the abundance of research showing that diverse teams perform better, the lack of diversity in STEM also leads to issues like racial bias against African-Americans in healthcare algorithms and facial recognition error rates more than 40x worse for Black women as light-skinned men.
Solving this problem will take deep dedication across STEM fields.
As one small part of this, the Black Students in STEM Scholarship will be awarded to a Black undergraduate or graduate student who is majoring in a STEM field.
