We here at Influenster are passionate about sharing the stories of women in professional industries. Because we hold this as a core value to our technology-based brand, Influenster is making an active commitment to change the ratio of women in STEM fields. And, that's exactly why we launched the Influenster Scholarship for Women in STEM, which rewards outstanding female university students who specialize in fields that span from design engineering to applied mathematics. 

With this scholarship, Influenster aspires not only to raise awareness on gender inequality in STEM, but also to narrow the gap by empowering more women to pursue careers in STEM.

"This year, scholarship applications more than doubled compared to our previous scholarship cycle, so we're thrilled and encouraged to see the overwhelming response from driven, ambitious women pursuing careers in STEM. As a female-founded tech company with a majority female workforce and membership base, Influenster is dedicated to supporting female students in fulfilling their dreams of becoming leaders in their respective fields," said Elizabeth Scherle, Co-Founder and President of Influenster.

The recipients of our scholarship have demonstrated passion and excitement for their respective fields and truly embody the potential for what the future of STEM holds.
