Women remain underrepresented in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) professions and there is a need to close the gender gap and inspire the next generation of female innovators and leaders. As a way to help address gender inequity in STEM, the New Mexico Out-of-School Time Network (NMOST) has created the Advancing Young Women in STEM Scholarships. NMOST's goal is to give women interested in STEM the opportunity to pursue their passions and interests and work towards closing the gender gap in STEM.

In 2018, scholarships helped three New Mexico women pursue their dreams in STEM fields. NMOST was able to increase the number of scholarships for 2019 to six, and in 2020 NMOST raised enough funding to support 12 young women in pursuing their passion for STEM. In 2021 NMOST plans to award 12 scholarships. NMOST encourages you to donate to the scholarship fund to support women in STEM, building their confidence in themselves and their abilities, as well as motivating them to continue their work. The 2021 sponsorship packet can be found here.
