Orchard is now accepting applications for our second annual Scholarship for Women of Color in STEM.
In May 2022, Orchard announced that a first-generation high school senior had received an inaugural scholarship of $2,500 to subsidize educational costs of a neuroscience degree from Barnard College.
This year, Orchard will award scholarships of $500, $1,000 and $2,500 to three eligible and deserving students.
This scholarship is part of Orchard’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives. One of our goals as a company is to encourage diversity within our industry and to find ways to make a difference outside of our organization.
This scholarship is available to either: a female high school senior of color interested in pursuing a STEM degree in college, OR a female undergraduate college sophomore or junior of color currently pursuing a STEM degree.
