Watermark Offers Scholarships to Female STEM Students
Austin-based educational intelligence software provider Watermark is in its second year of the Watermark Scholars scholarship program. This program focuses on female students who are pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) studies.
Two scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded for the Fall 2021 academic term. Entry deadline is July 15, 2021.
Eligible students are U.S. female residents enrolled at U.S.-based colleges or universities (two- or four-year institutions) with a sophomore/second year or higher standing, currently enrolled in a STEM degree-granting program for Fall 2021 or demonstrating plans to pursue a career in the field of science or technology after graduation.
Students are asked to share stories of who inspired them to pursue a career in science or technology and what they are inspired to do with that knowledge in 500-word written essays or 2-minute video submissions. Winners will be notified and asked to verify enrollment in an eligible institution. Previous applicants are eligible to reapply for the 2021 scholarship.
