Scholarships for Women in STEM Fields

The Winter Park, American Association of University Women have awarded scholarships to women who plan on pursuing a degree in a STEM field – science, technology, engineering and math. Five local women, who have all maintained close to a 4.0 grade point average, each received $1,000 to aid with their tuition.

“These scholarships reinforce the importance of higher education and gender equity in school and the workplace,” said Linda Macdonald, the association’s public relations coordinator. “It’s been a top goal for the association to get more women into these math and science-related careers.”
