The STEMmys

STEMmysSponsorshipInformation The STEMmys have been created to recognize the contributions of African-American individuals and organizations who are contributing to the promotion of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education among African Americans in the Greater Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky Region. They are intended to shine a bright light on the strides that have and can be achieved through collective work, support and community ownership. We will intentionally illuminate the possibilities that can be cultivated through demonstrated support and responsibility. The proceeds from the STEMmys will be used to create college scholarships for gifted high school students..

The 3rd Annual STEMmys Awards will be held on October 2, 2021. Award nominations will open in January.

Nominations for the 2021 STEMmys Awards are open!!!

Men and Women of STEM Excellence Fellows

The men and women of STEM Excellence (MWSE) Fellowship was launched to give undergraduate students and early career professionals in STEM fields an accelerated leadership development opportunity. The fellowship is a two-year commitment focused on developing leadership skills to prepare the fellows to gain leadership, complex problem solving and networking skills to prepare them to take on high-level leadership positions in their fields and their communities. The fellows are matched with a mentor, whose career skills and interests align with theirs.

Each quarter, the fellows have topics to work on individually and within groups. These topics and readings challenge their identities and perceptions and push them to strengthen their skills as leaders.
