Funding a college education is a vital question, and Women in STEMM at Wright State can help answer it. Women in STEMM programs at Wright State University have already provided thousands of dollars in scholarships to women pursuing degrees in both undergraduate and graduate STEMM fields.
Considine Scholars Program: This fund was initiated by the Considine family to enhance the success of Women in STEMM and to increase the percent of women in the STEMM workforce. Currently, it provides $5,000 per year to each of three Scholars, for a paid STEMM work experience. Use scholarship search to learn more and apply.
Virginia Arlene Di Flora Memorial Scholarship: This fund provides the value of in-state tuition plus $500 book allowance. Use scholarship search to learn more and apply.
