The Alberta Women’s Science Network (AWSN) is a non-profit organization that supports advocacy towards a more diverse, equitable and inclusive STEM future. The AWSN scholarship is an equity program designed through an intersectional lens* to support STEM students underrepresented in their STEM field of study who demonstrate leadership as they pursue their STEM goals. 

AWSN acts as a platform that initiates or supports programs, partners, and stakeholders who amplify, magnify, or accelerate systemic and social change within the greater community, allowing all to participate to their full capacity in STEM. 

Identity factors that will be considered through an intersectional lens (in no particular order): Self-identified Woman, Self-identified Man, Non-binary, LGBTQ2S+, Persons with a disability, Black Person, Indigenous Person, Racialized Person, Age, Dependents/Caregiving Responsibility, University Location, and STEM Program Enrolment. 

*Intersectional lens - defined as an interconnected analytical framework for understanding how the social and political identities of an individual intersects to create different types of systemic oppression and discrimination and lived experiences.
