STEM Opportunities for Women and Minorities

The U.S. Department of Education has forecasted that STEM-related occupations will grow by as much as 60% by 2020, and while the field has long been underrepresented by women and minorities believe now is an excellent time to help change that. That’s why they've created a comprehensive resource on STEM opportunities for women and minorities that includes a curated list of scholarships. The resource can be found at the link below.


Student loan debt has grown over 300% in the past 8 years, placing more of a financial burden across students nationwide. According to the U.S. Department of Education this affects minority students disproportionately: statistically they borrow more in student loans, are more likely to drop out due to problems securing funding, and are left with higher levels of student debt once they graduate. Fortunately, there are opportunities available to help these students avoid unnecessary debt. To help with this has created a guide to financial aid for minority students. 

This guide answers the big questions, such as:

  • Where can I find minority-specific financial aid?
  • How do I minimize my student loan debt?
  • How do I maximize my chances of winning a scholarship?
