Hyundai Celebrates Women's Day with STEM Scholarship for Female Students
Hyundai Motors celebrated International Women's Day by introducing the Hyundai Women in STEM Scholarship. Created to help the next generation of women leaders, the scholarship aims to empower females to close the gender gap in fields mostly dominated by men, such as mobility, engineering, and autonomous driving.
Five, highly-driven, ambitious, STEM scholarships will be awarded to female students.
“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.”
Those who wish to join must be female high school seniors or undergraduate students who live in the United States. They should express a strong desire to pursue a STEM-related field of study. Eligible students can apply for the award by writing a 500-word essay or more on why they want to pursue a STEM-related education. They should also include what drives them to be better.
If you--or someone you know--fits the bill, then you can apply now until June 30, 2020. You can learn more about the STEM scholarship by clicking this site: https://www.tun.com/blog/hyundai-women-in-stem-scholarship/.
