Synopsis of the Program

Johnson & Johnson WiSTEM2D Scholars Award is a $150,000 award to support women pursuing research in STEM2D (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing & Design). WiSTEM2D Scholars Award aims to fuel the development of female STEM2D leaders and feed the STEM2D talent pipeline by awarding and sponsoring women at critical points in their research careers, in each of the STEM2D disciplines. Award recipients, one in each of the STEM2D disciplines, will gain access to ongoing funding over the course of 3 years, along with mentorship from STEM2D professionals. The program is designed to help build a larger pool of highly-trained researchers to meet the growing needs of academia and industry. For more information visit the J&J WiSTEM2D page.

Due to limits by the sponsor, Syracuse University is conducting an internal competition to determine nominees for this Award program. Only one application from Syracuse University will be allowed in each of the six (6) areas: Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing & Design. Please think broadly about the category for which you will apply. The areas of Technology and Manufacturing are traditionally under-represented in applications.

Eligibility

You must be a woman working in the field(s) of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing and Design (STEM2D). You must be a female non-tenured, assistant professor.

The female scholar should have a minimum degree for the appropriate field:

  • Science; M.D., Ph.D.
  • Technology; Ph.D.
  • Engineering; Ph.D.
  • Math; M.S., Ph.D.
  • Manufacturing; Ph.D.
  • Design; M.A., M.S., MDes, MArch, MFA, MLA, Ph.D.

Application Materials

Applicants must submit a 2-page research proposal and a summary CV. Full details of application requirements may be found on the Syracuse University Application Portal.

Limited Submission Selection Process

If the number of proposals submitted under the Limited Submission process exceeds the number that the University can submit to the sponsor, peer review will be triggered. Peer reviewers will rank the proposals in several categories, including:

  • Scientific merit of proposed research
  • Potential impact of the research on selected area of STEM2D
  • Applicant’s potential impact as a potential future leader in STEM2D
