By UnigoAre there scholarships specifically for women in science? If you are majoring in any of the sciences, there are lots of scholarships available. If you are a woman, there are even more. STEM majors are in high demand. The U.S. does not have enough people working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics jobs. Because of this, scholarships are plentiful. Last year, the U.S. had just over a half million graduates with STEM degrees. Compared to India, which had 2.7 million graduates, and China, with 4.8 million, the U.S. has some catching up to do. In order to stay globally competitive in technology and science, the U.S. needs to produce more workers in this field. Recruiting women to the STEM fields is important. This is good news because this means lots of scholarships for women in science fields. If you study these majors, then you can likely go to college for free.10 General Science Scholarships to Apply for in 2019ScholarshipAmountDeadlineThe Jeannette Rankin Foundation Scholarships Awarded to low-income women studying in technical or vocational fields.VariesFebruarySociety of Women Engineers Sophomore-Graduate Scholarships Supports women pursuing bachelor or graduate student programs in preparation for careers in engineering, engineering technology and computer science in the United States.VariesFebruary 15Libbie H.
