About Infosys Foundation STEM Stars Scholarship for Girls
(Creating future career opportunities for young women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)

In India, approximately 1.6 million girls continue to be deprived of education, as they remain out of school. Specifically, around 25% of girl students in India face the unfortunate circumstance of dropping out, particularly during their 10th to 12th grade.

 

An education in STEM is crucial for India and its girl students. STEM unlocks career prospects, fuels innovation, stimulates economic growth, tackles societal changes, and above all, empowers girls in today’s digital age.

 

Unfortunately, Indian women in STEM are highly under-represented. Data indicates that while 52% of women enrolled for STEM courses for their graduation, only 29% of them ended up joining the STEM workforce. Lack of access, mentorship, confidence and monetary constraints are the primary reasons to not opt for STEM, despite realizing its advantages in propelling their career forward.

 

In order to bridge this gap, Infosys Foundation has introduced STEM Stars, a scholarship program for girl students that aims to encourage and provide financial assistance, thereby helping them pursue an undergraduate degree in STEM.
