The goal of Future Women Leaders in STEM is to spotlight current female high school sophomores or juniors who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in one or more of the following areas: science, technology, engineering, and math. As a leader in STEM education, the Academy offers challenging and experiential curriculums and we realize its role in promoting the advancement of women in science, technology, engineering, and math. 

To be eligible to receive the FWL in STEM Award, candidates must:

  • Be a female enrolled in her sophomore or junior year at a private or public high school

This scholarship pays a minimum of full tuition (in-state equivalent) for one year and recipients must be in attendance at the award ceremony to receive the scholarship.
