Association for Women in Science New Jersey chapter offers scholarships to female high school seniors and Juniors, residing anywhere in the state. The purpose of the competition is to provide encouragement to New Jersey high school women who have chosen to undertake a science, technology, engineering, or math course of study. This year, applicants from all parts of New Jersey displayed especially high academic performance, were active in a wide variety of extracurricular activities, and received exceptional support from their recommenders. Essays were well written and thought-provoking, enlightening our review committee about the lives and aspirations of our applicants, and about the accomplishments of inspirational New Jersey women scientists.
