St. Catherine University Receives Grant for Scholarships for Women in STEM Fields

St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota, received a five-year, $600,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to provide scholarships for women majoring in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. The grant will allow the university to provide scholarships for at least 65 women over the next five years.

The scholarship program benefits female students who demonstrate financial need. But the program is making a special effort to attract students from the Hmong and Somali immigrant communities in Minnesota.
