By Matt Konrad

As College Signing Day draws closer, it’s time to start finalizing your plans for next year—and there are some generous scholarships out there that can help, including a $10,000 award for women in STEM, and a $25,000 renewable scholarship in memory of Scholarship America’s late board chair. Learn about those opportunities below and check out our Browse Scholarships page for much more!

Navisite’s Next Steminist Scholarship Program 

Navisite, a part of Accenture, is a trusted digital transformation partner for growing and established global brands. The company is also committed to giving back and established the #NaviGivesBack initiative as a way for employees to support the communities and causes that matter most to them. 

As part of that initiative, Navisite is proud to once again offer the Next Steminist Scholarship, designed to help close the gender gap in tech and encourage young women like these 2023 scholarship recipients to go after their dreams in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). The program provides $10,000 scholarship awards to eligible female candidates who are currently pursuing or plan to pursue a degree in STEM. Three winners will be named, each receiving a $10,000 scholarship. 

Navisite’s Next Steminist Scholarship applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents who identify as female and are age 25 or younger as of the application deadline. You must also be a current high school senior or graduate or current college undergraduate enrolled or planning to enroll full-time in an eligible major for the entire upcoming academic year. 

Your academic performance will also be considered. All applicants are required to have a minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent). In addition, Navisite is asking applicants to submit a 60-second video discussing your dream career – and how a STEM degree will help you make a positive impact on the world.  

If you’re ready to level up your future and pursue your passion in STEM, don’t miss out on this opportunity to earn $10,000 toward a life-changing degree!

Scholarship America’s Barry Griswell Scholarship 

Former Scholarship America Board Chair Barry Griswell was a passionate, lifelong advocate for students. He was dedicated to helping young people from historically marginalized communities overcome difficult circumstances. That dedication was inspired by his own experiences, which saw him emerge from a troubled upbringing, attend college with the help of scholarships, and become a business leader, philanthropist and author. 

We were devastated when Barry passed away unexpectedly in 2020. To honor his work, life and legacy, Scholarship America worked with Barry’s loved ones, colleagues and fellow Board Members to raise funds for a truly impactful scholarship in his name—and we are proud to be accepting applications for the 2023 Barry Griswell Scholarship, through May 23. 

The Barry Griswell Scholarship provides renewable awards of up to $25,000/year to students with financial need who are pursuing associate’s or bachelor’s degrees. Awards are renewable for up to five total years—and they are designed with flexibility and student needs at the forefront. 

Each cohort of Barry Griswell Scholars will be able to count on financial, cultural and social support from Scholarship America. What’s more, Scholars will also be able to count on each other for inspiration and connection through college and beyond.  

To apply for the Barry Griswell Scholarship, you must be a high school senior, a high school/GED graduate or a current college undergrad. Current students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent). Applicants will be asked to demonstrate financial need, and to tell us about obstacles you’ve overcome in pursuit of education. 

Applicants must be United States citizens, permanent residents or individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA), and must plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school in the U.S. for the entire upcoming academic year.
