Intel has collaborated with AFCEA to make possible the “Intel-AFCEA Graduate Diversity Scholarship” for students. This funding program is currently accepting applications from STEM students pursuing a Master’s degree or PhD during the Fall 2021-Spring 2022 term. The program will benefit only U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and those who are living within the U.S. Students with a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA will be given preference. Intel Graduate Diversity Scholarship is such a fantastic program that brings lots of perks for students. These perks include funding, mentorship, training, networking and research so on. The primary motive of this program is to provide financial support to students for their educational purposes as well as help them gather essential tools needed to lay the foundation of a successful career.
This program is open for applications until May 31, 2021. The fund will go toward the higher education of eligible candidates. Pursuing a STEM degree might be a costly affair for most of the students who belong to a poorer background. Since college education involves various expenses from tuition to books and supplies, it might be difficult for a financially disadvantaged student to meet all these expenses at once with their savings. Intel understands such problems that come on students’ path of earning a college education, and that is why it has granted this funding program with the support of AFCEA. The company also knows that the field of STEM should have more leaders from diverse background and culture, and through this program, it is aiming to promote diversity and encourage diverse talent in the STEM field.
