In 2018, an estimated 20% of all U.S. jobs will require a high level of knowledge in science, technology, engineering or math—commonly referred to as STEM fields.
You've probably heard a lot about these hot careers in the news as of late, but helping to prep and nurture the STEM movers and shakers of tomorrow certainly isn't a new concept for Johnson & Johnson.
Over the past 25 years, the company has created several programs specifically designed to help everyone from grade schoolers to women succeed in future STEM careers.
Initiatives like the new WiSTEM2D Scholars Program, which starts taking applications September 1.
The program—which is open to nontenured assistant female professors or the global equivalent at tenure-granting accredited academic universities, institutions or design schools—will fund one woman per area of STEM2D concentration: science, technology, engineering, math, manufacturing and design.
The six award winners will receive $150,000 in funding over three years, as well as support from Johnson & Johnson mentors and other industry leaders.
