Study International Recognizes Spelman College in STEM Efforts

February 2023

STEMFebruary 11 marks International Day of Women and Girls in Science – a celebration of the critical role women and girls play in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). To commemorate the significance of this holiday, Study International has recognized Spelman College as one of "7 universities and organisations that want to get more women into STEM."

Spelman has built a strong record of educating women of African descent in STEM disciplines. From recent partnerships with Google’s charitable arm – – and the College’s Center of Excellence for Minority Women in STEM (COE-MWS) to a substantial commitment from the Simons Foundation to further support STEM studies, Spelman has remained intent on increasing the presence of women of color in the STEM workforce.

To further support this mission, the College has developed multiple scholarship programs such as the Falconer Scholar in Residence, the Living and Learning in an Interdisciplinary Networked Community of STEM Scholars (LINCS Scholars), and a joint venture with SMASH – a STEM racial justice non-profit focused on addressing education inequities.

Moreover, such academic programs like G-STEM (Enhancing Global Research and Education in STEM) and the RISE (Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement) program to annual events like Research Day provide structured research training opportunities that give Spelman women the experience to interact with STEM on a global scale.
