If you are a young female student in your senior year of high school, planning to go to college this fall to study science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM), then you should check out the new Galactic Unite STEM Scholarship Program.
UNCF (United Negro College Fund), Virgin Galactic, the world’s first spaceline, and the Virgin Group’s not-for-profit Virgin Unite, have launched the Galactic Unite STEM Scholarship Program for young women.
The program offers two scholarship opportunities, the Galactic Unite Bytheway Scholarship and the Galactic Unite Virginia Rudnicki Scholarship. Both will provide $7,500 scholarships to first-year female college students pursuing STEM degrees at any accredited four-year college or university in the United States. Both will be awarded in September 2013 and are renewable for four years. Applicants must be U.S. citizens for both programs.
**The application deadline is May 31, 2013.
The scholarships have been made possible by generous donations from Virgin Galactic Future Astronauts Jann Bytheway and Kevin Obarski on behalf of Virginia Rudnicki.
