STEM Conference College Program

THE STORY:

      Each year the FEDI Foundation initiates a fundraising campaign to assist young women pursuing STEM related degrees to attend the annual Women of Color STEM Conference. This important event has been an invaluable tool for over two decades. It offers networking with STEM professionals, soft-skills training for students, job and internship search support, and role-models who help these students see clearly the path to a successful STEM career.

       This year FEDI plans to award 100 scholarships to deserving young women on college campuses nationwide to attend this unique and enriching educational experience. Our goal is to raise $50,000 from corporations, foundations, and individuals for the next generation of STEM learners to become leaders in the field.

Matching Gift 

             For every dollar raised, the conference host, Career Communications Group, Inc, will match donations up to a total of $50,000, enabling twice as many students in need (a total of 200 scholars)  to attend at no cost. Scholarships provide registration, transportation, accommodations, and meals for two nights and three days during the conference. The 22nd Women of Color STEM Conference takes place October 5-7, 2017 at the COBO Center in Detroit, Michigan.
