BlackBerry Scholars - STEM Scholarships for Women

BlackBerry Scholars just launched a new program that awards full scholarships to women heading into their first year of university/college in a STEM field.

What's a STEM Field?

STEM is anything in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics 

As someone who is educated in a STEM field, I am a huge advocate for supporting women who want to pursue an education and I commend BlackBerry for being active in supporting this. I was interested in science at a young age and I am thankful my parents and educators fostered that spark and allowed me to pursue my desire to be in science. Too often, that spark fades and women feel they are inadequate or can't compete in a male-centered profession.

I highly encourage any woman thinking about pursuing science at a higher level of education to not only apply for this scholarship, but to continue to purse their passion and pave the way for future generations of women in STEM careers.
BlackBerry Scholars:

The BlackBerry® Scholars Program is a global four-year scholarship program for outstanding women entering their first year of undergraduate study at an accredited college or university. The Program is designed to help increase the number of women studying and influencing the future of mobile computing, including Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, and particularly those with an interest and/or aptitude in the mobile computing space.

Women who will be entering their first year of study in the 2013-2014 academic year and are interested in this scholarship may apply for the Program by 5pm EST on the June 26th, 2013 application deadline.
