    New! We Are Teachers | Minority Students entering STEAM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Arts/Mathematics) degrees should check out the site https://www.weareteachers.com/scholarships-minority-students-steam/.  The individual scholarships offered in the link are incorporated in the listing below. Minorities and women make up a small percentage of the science, engineering and architectural workforce. Let’s change this! We have some of the best STEAM scholarships available to students looking to pursue degrees in these fields. Share these with your students, parents, and fellow educators. Together, we can encourage and diversify the next generation of architects, engineers, creators, and innovators.
