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 building environments where women from all backgrounds can thrive and be supported, so that our future is one where equity, inclusion, and social justice are integrated into our STEM communities. We consider this fellowship necessary 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 our awardees with an honorarium, mentorship opportunities, leadership training, and recognition in the STEM community.

For more information on this program contact us at fellowship@500womenscientists.org.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 in individual donations. With this amount we will be able to launch the first cohort in 2020 and ensure support of a second cohort in 2021.

Help us reach our goal!
