500 Women Scientists is launching a new fellowship to recognize and amplify the crucial role of women of color in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We consider this fellowship necessary for supporting environments where women from all backgrounds can thrive and be supported in STEM, and to help build a future in which equity, inclusion, and social justice are integrated into STEM communities. We consider this fellowship necessary, in other words, to support the future.

Our fellowship will be awarded to women of color who are leading current projects or launching new ones in line with our organization’s mission: Making science more open, inclusive, and accessible. In addition to supporting their projects, this fellowship program provides mentorship opportunities and leadership training to awardees.
