$10,000 award for an essay of 500 words
Today, the role of women in the workplace is indispensable. They share the global workforce of 45.4 percent. They have been playing as formal and informal laborers since the existence of humanity and have helped transform the world. This year, we again celebrated the auspicious International Women’s Day with a great expression for women in society. Hyundai, which means “modernity” in Korean, has come up with a modern way to bolster women ready for the future.
The Company has introduced the Hyundai Women in STEM Scholarship to help the next generation of women leaders. This scholarship aims to help close the gender gap in engineering, mobility, and autonomous driving fields by awarding female students interested in pursuing an education and career in those disciplines.
Five female STEM students who are driven by better results will receive a scholarship in the amount of $10,000 each.
“At Hyundai, we understand that building a better future starts with investing in the young women inventing it today,” said Angela Zepeda, CMO, Hyundai Motor America, “We hope this scholarship program helps funnel more women into the STEM fields, resulting in a significant impact to the gender gap that still exists today.”
Participants must be high school seniors and college undergraduate students who identify as female, reside in the United States and wish to pursue a STEM-related field of education. Eligible students are required to write an essay of 500 words in order to apply for the award or why they decided to pursue a STEM-related field and what drives them to be better.
Applications are open now until June 30, 2020. More information can be found at https://www.tun.com/blog/hyundai-women-in-stem-scholarship/. The winners will be announced on July 31, 2020.
