WiSTEM²D J&J Scholars Program
The Research & Innovation Office announces a limited submission internal competition for Johnson & Johnson's WiSTEM2D Scholars Program, an award to support women pursuing research in STEM2D. Please share with faculty within your unit.
The internal application requirements and link are below. Questions should be sent to Ryan Reeves at email@example.com.
All interested applicants should review the Procedures for Limited Campus Competitions on the RIO website.
The J&J WiSTEM2D Scholars Award Program will help develop female leaders and support innovation in the STEM2D disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing, Design) by funding six women at critical points in their research careers through a Scholar’s Award.
The Scholars Award is a 3-year award in the gross amount of $150,000, which will be paid to the University (the “Recipient”) for the benefit of the J&J Scholar and her research, with the understanding that the Recipient will administer the funds.
The six inaugural awards will be available in 2018 and aim to fund one woman per area of STEM2D concentration in the early career stage where they have concluded their advanced degree training but are not at the level of tenure in their accredited university or design school institution. The early-career support is aimed to be a catalyst for women to become leaders in their organizations and fields. The program will help build a larger pool of highly-trained researchers to meet the growing needs of academia and industry.
The J&J WiSTEM2D Scholars Award Program will play an influential role in achievements made in the areas of STEM2D and the future.
