YMWIC Scholarship Program
We accept member enrollments at any point during the Program Year. Students in the Chester Upland, Coatesville, Norristown, Philadelphia – Furness High School, Phoenixville, Upper Darby, West Chester, and William Penn School Districts are invited to enroll in one of our upcoming programs and/or events to get to know the organization and learn more about YMWIC membership; the advantages of becoming a YMWIC Scholar; and understanding how the many services and resources provided benefit Scholars personally, academically, and professionally.
Become a YMWIC Scholar
While in college, thanks to the commitment of YMWIC’s corporate and university partners, each Scholar alum who maintains the Foundation’s academic requirements and standards is eligible to receive scholarship support and participate in internships that will prepare them for STEM careers.
YMWIC has a rolling membership process. Students who are interested in seeking membership with YMWIC must submit an application. Students eligible for application must be in the 3rd through 11th grades as of the September – June program year. They do not need to have an interest in STEM.
Once enrolled in the organization, each young Scholar and his or her family become part of the YMWIC family. They make a commitment to remain an active participant in the Foundation until high school graduation, to participate fully in program activities, and maintain a high grade point average.
Student members are placed into the following grade-appropriate Scholar programs:
Aligned with the Foundation’s Mission, these Scholar groups and activities aim to bridge the gap between academic study and real-life by providing opportunities, projects, and challenges that simulate real-world experiences. Programs available focus on math and science with exciting hands-on projects, engaging laboratory experiments, and interactive STEM-related workshops. Additional workshop topics include Leadership Development, Preparing and Succeeding in College, Career Readiness, Financial Literacy, etc.
