Calling all women in WiSTEM2D at the graduate level with innovative ideas. Johnson & Johnson 2020 WiSTEM2D Scholar Award application deadline is soon approaching. Apply by Oct. 3 for a chance to win a $150,000 grant and 3 years of mentorship from leaders at J&J.
The Johnson & Johnson Scholars Award Program aims to fuel development of female STEM2D leaders and feed the STEM2D talent pipeline by awarding and sponsoring women at critical points in their careers, in each of the STEM2D disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing and Design.
Applications will open September 14, 2020, and will close at 9AM HST (Honolulu Standard Time) on October 15, 2020.
The awards will fund one woman per STEM2D discipline who has completed her advanced degree, who is working as an assistant professor (or global equivalent faculty position) and who is not yet tenured at an accredited university, institution or design school. The goal is to fuel the research passion of the awarded women and inspire career paths in their respective STEM2D fields. Johnson & Johnson is looking to identify global women leading in both their research fields and leading as mentors, to be a vision for girls and other women in STEM2D.
By offering these awards, Johnson & Johnson hopes to play an influential role in STEM2D breakthroughs in the future.
