In celebration of the recent International Women’s Day, Hyundai has introduced the Hyundai Women in STEM Scholarship to help encourage the next generation of female leaders. Five students will receive a scholarship for the amount of US$10,000 each.
The scholarship is meant to close the gender gap in engineering, mobility and autonomous driving by awarding female students interested in pursuing an education and career in those disciplines.
“At Hyundai, we understand that building a better future starts with investing in the young women inventing it today. 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,” said Angela Zepeda, CMO, Hyundai Motor America.
Participants must be high school seniors or undergraduate students who are female, reside in the USA and wish to pursue a STEM-related field of education. Eligible students can apply for the award by writing an essay of 500 words or more on why they chose to pursue a STEM-related field and what drives them to be better.
Applications are open now until June 30, 2020. More information can be found here.
