Johnson & Johnson $150,000 WiSTEM2D Scholars Award Program 2020 for female leaders in STEM discipline

Deadline: AM HST (Honolulu Standard Time), October 3, 2019.

The Johnson & Johnson Scholars Award Program offers to support the development of female STEM2D leaders and feed the STEM2D talent pipeline. It does these by sponsoring and awarding women at critical points in their careers, in each of the STEM2D disciplines: Math, Manufacturing and Design, Science, Technology, and Engineering.

The scholarship funds one woman per STEM2D discipline:

  • Women who have completed her advanced degree,
  • Women working as an assistant professor (or global equivalent faculty position) and who is not yet tenured at an accredited university, institution or design school.

The goal of the scholarship is to support and inspire the research passion of the awarded women and inspire career paths in their respective STEM2D fields. Johnson & Johnson is looking to identify global women leading in both their research fields and leading as mentors, to be a vision for girls and other women in STEM2D.


The applicant must be a woman working in the field(s) of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing and Design (STEM2D).

The applicant must be an assistant female professor or global equivalent faculty position at the time of application at an accredited academic university, institution or design school.

The female scholar should have a minimum degree for the appropriate field:

Math; M.S., Ph.D.

Science; M.D., Ph.D.

Technology; Ph.D.

Engineering; Ph.D.

Manufacturing; Ph.D.

Design; M.A., M.S., MDes, MArch, MFA, MLA, Ph.D
