Women and minorities are underrepresented in the manufacturing industry. Statistics illustrate the discrepancy. Currently, only 21% of engineering bachelor’s degree recipients are women, while minorities account for just 13% of science and engineering positions. Similarly, in industry, women represent just 29% of the manufacturing workforce while minorities account for only 20%, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics. The Foundation is working to increase opportunities for women and minorities. In the past two years, a record number of scholarships were awarded to underrepresented students. By completing just one application, students can apply for all scholarships for which they are eligible. It’s easy!
