Canadian Women In STEM Award Scholarship

The annual $10,000 FIRST Canada Canadian Women in STEM Scholarship, sponsored by the Murai family, is awarded annually to one young woman in robotics who demonstrates a deep dedication to the advancement of equity, diversity, and inclusion in STEM through impressive leadership and a strong passion for the field. Our mission with this scholarship is to level the playing field for motivated girls to pursue meaningful careers in STEM and feel empowered to inspire and remove barriers for other young women. It is our dream that with this scholarship, we can work towards a future that truly values and celebrates the contributions and successes of all women in STEM.
