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 application period for 2020 awards is open from September 3 through October 3, 2019. 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.

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. You do not need to be in a tenure-track position.

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.
