Johnson & Johnson recently announced six winners for its 2019 Women in STEM2D Scholars Award. Each winner will receive $150,000 in funding and three years of mentorship from the company.
Johnson & Johnson launched its Women in STEM2D (WiSTEM2D) Scholars Award in 2017 to encourage the development of female STEM2D leaders by awarding and sponsoring women. Each of the award women will have their research supported as part of the program.
Female scholars from the science, technology, engineering, math, manufacturing and design disciplines were nominated. Johnson & Johnson had an independent advisory board that selected winners from more than 400 qualified applications from across the world. The company will recognize the winners at an April 24 ceremony at its New Brunswick, N.J. headquarters.
