Johnson & Johnson Women in STEM²D Scholars Award Program 2019 ($150,000 award)
Deadline: September 25, 2018
Applications are open for the Johnson & Johnson WiSTEM²D Scholars Award Program 2019. This is a $150,000 award to support women pursuing research in STEM2D (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing & Design).
The Johnson & Johnson Scholars Award Program aims to fuel the development of female STEM2D leaders and feed the STEM2D talent pipeline by awarding and sponsoring women at critical points in their research careers, in each of the STEM2D disciplines. The program is designed to help build a larger pool of highly-trained researchers to meet the growing needs of academia and industry
The awards will fund one woman per discipline who has completed her advanced degree, who is working as an assistant professor and who is not yet tenured at an accredited university or design institution. The goal is to fuel the research passion of the awarded women and inspire career paths in their respective STEM2D fields.
Award recipients, one in each of the STEM2D disciplines, will gain access to ongoing funding over the course of 3 years, along with mentorship from STEM2D professionals. By offering these awards, Johnson & Johnson hopes to play an influential role in STEM2D breakthroughs in the future.
- The Scholars Award is a three-year award in the gross amount of $150,000, which will be paid to the University (the “Recipient”) for the benefit of the Johnson & Johnson Scholar and her research, with the understanding that the Recipient will administer the funds.
