Help Support Black Student in STEM at WWU!
Fund Establishment Purpose: The faculty in the College of Science and Engineering has established a fund to provide support for Black students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Black people face unique and systemic barriers to succeeding in STEM, contributing to historical and ongoing underrepresentation in undergraduate and graduate STEM programs, and in STEM careers. The impetus for the fund is the 2020 protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Through this scholarship we can, together, make an impact on the educational goals of Black students at WWU for generations to come.
Our initial goal is to raise $25,000 to establish an endowment fund that will support the scholastic and research aspirations of Black undergraduate and graduate students. Please join us in making a lasting impact for our students. Together we can make a difference.
