FIRST Fellowship for Designing STEM Equity

Designing solutions that create equity in STEM for underrepresented, underserved, and vulnerable youth is complex work. Building the capacity of emerging leaders to address these issues is even harder, but it’s vital for creating a more prosperous society for all. Leader development supports the FIRST strategic objective of having an equitable, inclusive, and diverse audience in its programs, reflecting the population of the communities we serve.

The FIRST Fellowship for Designing STEM Equity program training and methodology will include equity literacy, anti-deficit framing, collective impact and human-centered design. While the application deadline is now closed, stay tuned for more information about the Fellowship and prepare to help us celebrate the inaugural Fellow and journey.
