The Johnson & Johnson fully funded WiSTEM²D Scholars Award Program will help develop women leaders and support innovation in STEM fields. Moreover, it helps to feed the STEM2D talent pipeline by awarding and sponsoring women at critical points in their careers, in each of the STEM2D disciplines: Science; Technology; Engineering; Math; Manufacturing, and Design. By offering these awards, Johnson & Johnson hopes to play an influential role in STEM2D breakthroughs in the future.
The awards will fund one woman per STEM2D discipline who has completed her advanced degree, who is working as an assistant professor (or global equivalent faculty position). As well as the candidate should not yet be tenured at an accredited university, institution or design school. The goal is to fuel the research passion of the awarded women as well as inspire career paths in their respective STEM2D fields. Johnson & Johnson is looking to identify global women leading in both their research fields and leading as mentors, to be a vision for girls and other women in STEM2D.
The Fully Funded Johnson & Johnson Women Scholars Award is a three-year award in the gross amount of $150,000. The award is payable to the University for the benefit of the Johnson & Johnson Scholar as well as her research. Moreover, the Scholars Award is payable in three (3) installments of U.S. $50,000 per year over the three-year scholarship period.
