Guest post | Johnson & Johnson is now accepting global applications for nominations for its 2020 Women in STEM2D (WiSTEM2D) Scholars Award. Recipients will receive $150,000 — $50,000 each year for three years — and three years of mentorship from leaders at Johnson & Johnson.
Launched in June 2017, these STEM2D grants are given to assistant or associate academic professors worldwide in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, math, manufacturing and design. The WiSTEM2D Scholars Award aspires to fuel the development of female STEM2D leaders, and inspire career paths in STEM2D, by supporting the research of the awarded women in their respective STEM2D fields.
An independent external advisory board will select the 2020 winners, each of whom will represent one of the STEM2D disciplines.
