NMOST Advancing Young Women in STEM Scholarships

Women remain underrepresented in the STEM professions and there is a need to close the gender gap and inspire the next generation of female innovators and leaders. NMOST has created the Advancing Young Women in STEM Scholarships to help address the gender gap in the STEM disciplines and STEM-related fields.

The 2020 Advancing Young Women in STEM scholarship awards event took place on September 16th
