Careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are an important part of building a successful future for our world. To help encourage more women to pursue these fields, Hyundai has started a Women in STEM Scholarship. Hyundai will give this scholarship to five female STEM students with an award of $10,000 each.
“At Hyundai, we understand that building a better future starts with investing in the young women inventing it today,” said Angela Zepeda, CMO, Hyundai Motor America, “We hope this scholarship program helps funnel more women into the STEM fields, resulting in a significant impact to the gender gap that still exists today.”
Interested applicants must live in the United States and be high school seniors or enrolled in an undergraduate program in a STEM-related program. To apply for the scholarship, students need to write an essay of at least 500 words describing why they want to pursue a STEM field and what drives them to be a better person.
The application window is open through June 30, 2020. Applications should be submitted online and should include a link to the essay. Through this scholarship, Hyundai hopes to see even more women pursue these advanced degrees to help create even more innovations in the automotive industry and beyond.
At Gossett Hyundai, we’re proud to represent an automaker that’s doing its part to promote more women in STEM!
