The Future of STEM Scholars Initiative (FOSSI) Program 2021

Do you know a deserving student who loves all things STEM and could use some help paying for college?

We are delighted to share a life-changing opportunity for high school students studying science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) who plan to attend an Historically Black College or University (HBCU).

The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), The American Chemistry Council (ACC), The Chemours Company and HBCU Week Foundation have joined together to establish the chemical industry's first collaborative equity, diversity and inclusion initiative aimed at creating pathways for more underrepresented groups to enter and succeed in the chemical industry.

The Future of STEM Scholars Initiative program offers 4-year scholarships of $10K per year and will provide internship opportunities, and facilitate mentoring and leadership training. With a first-year goal of funding 150 scholars, this is an opportunity not to be missed!

The application process closes on February 15th, so we encourage you to spread the word today.

For more information and to apply for a FOSSI Scholarship, please go to www.AIChE.org/FOSSI  or www.HBCUWeek.org.  For program questions, please reach out to Sandy Sidey (sandys@aiche.org).
