High School Scholarship


Our High School Scholarship is for girls in their senior year of high school who plans to attend a Michigan university next fall and are interested in STEM.  

This scholarship is an exciting first step for many young women to not just begin a career in a STEM field but also in Defense.  Some of our own members or partners in the Defense industry received this scholarship. 

Scholarship amount is determined based on fundraising efforts so please participate and support WID events!  For more information email our Scholarship Chair at  scholarships@wid-mi.org .
