Did you know that, globally, only 22.2% of bachelor's degrees in engineering are held by women? There's a gender gap in the STEM workforce, and MPOWER Financing wants to help level the playing field. That's why the MPOWER Women in STEM Scholarship was created, so women can fund the STEM program of their dreams. This scholarship is meant for women who will use their STEM degree to benefit our world and who have the potential to serve as role models and advocates for other women in STEM.
Women in STEM Scholarship details
The Women in STEM Scholarship provides one scholarship for each of the three award levels:
- Grand Prize: $6,000

- Honourable Mention: $1,000
This means you have three chances to win some money for your education! The deadline to apply for the scholarship is January 15, 2023.
Am I eligible?
If you're a woman currently in, or about to enter a full-time STEM program as an international student in either the U.S. or Canada, you can apply to win up to US $6,000! To be eligible, you must:
- Be accepted to, or enrolled in a full-time STEM degree program at a U.S. or Canadian school that MPOWER supports
