Early to mid-career women working within a STEM2D university system are invited to send forward applications for the Johnson and Johnson WiSTEM2D Scholars Award Program. The Scholar stands to benefit a sum of $150,000 to support their research work. The application deadline for this opportunity is September.
he 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.
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.
- The Scholars Award is a three-year award in the gross amount of $150,000, which will be paid to the University (the “Recipient”) for the benefit of the Johnson & Johnson Scholar and her research, with the understanding that the Recipient will administer the funds.
- The Scholars Award will be paid in three (3) installments of U.S. $50,000 per year of the three-year scholarship period, subject to compliance with the terms and conditions of the program’s Agreement. Winners achievements will also be showcased at a symposium.
