The Virginia Council on Women 4th annual STEM Essay Contest

The Virginia Council on Women is pleased to host the 4th annual STEM essay contest. Governor Terry McAuliffe and First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe serve as Honorary Co-Chairs for the contest.

The purpose of the Council on Women (Council) is to help women reach their potential and maximize their contribution to society and the Commonwealth as wage earners and citizens. The Council has initiated several projects to meet this goal, one being the annual essay contest for young women in high school. We believe opportunities offered to women early in life will help lead to their success as productive and resourceful citizens.

The Council will award one $5,000 scholarship to a female junior or senior who will be pursuing a STEM career at an institution of higher education. Other scholarships may be awarded at the discretion of the Council. Essays will be judged by a panel of Council members and women who hold a degree in or work in STEM fields.

An awards presentation and reception will be held on Capitol Square in Richmond on April 15, 2015. 

Who is eligible?: Young women should be in their junior or senior year at a high school in Virginia and hold at least a 2.5 GPA.
