GC4W STEM College Scholarship for Women and Girls
With your charitable contributions to the GC4W STEM, College Scholarship for Women and Girls Campaign, the Global Connections for Women will be able to provide scholarships to deserving women and girls, who are looking to study S.T.E.M at a reputable and accredited university. The STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—has a significantly low representation of women, and the numbers continue to see no significant growth over the last decade. As reported by the U.S. Department of Commerce, for every seven engineers there is one female, and zero employment growth for women in STEM since 2000. Additionally, it was noted in the report that women in STEM jobs earned “33 percent” more than women in non-STEM jobs, and considerably higher than men in STEM. Therefore, the Gender Wage gap is much smaller in STEM jobs than in non-STEM jobs, providing more a unique opportunity for women and girls to thrive in STEM. However, with only 30% of women in STEM, we encourage you to take the necessary actions to ensure that more women and girls are not only taking up a major in STEM but that they continue to pursue careers in STEM. The findings in the report is a huge win for women and girls in the fight for Gender Equality provided we continue to encourage women and girls to take careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We invite you to sponsor a girl or woman in their pursuit of an education and career in STEM, by making a charitable contribution today. If you give more than $1,000, we will present the scholarship in your honor to our list of scholarships candidates.
