Dreams for Schools (DFS) is excited to announce the winner of the Summer 2022 Dreams for Schools STEAM Scholarship Award presented by Neudesic.
The STEAM Scholarship Award program, made possible with the support of our corporate partner, Neudesic, will be available to STEAM undergraduates working as DFS Instructors while they pursue their career goals in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, or Math (STEAM). Applications are received on a quarterly basis and 1-2 scholarships will be awarded once a quarter.
Both DFS and Neudesic believe in nurturing the next generation of STEAM talent by providing professional development, vocational opportunities, and support for academic excellence through this scholarship program. This need and merit based scholarship is intended to help DFS Instructors advance their trajectory through STEAM career pathways.
We are excited to announce the scholarship recipient of the DFS STEAM Scholarship Award program presented by Neudesic for Summer 2022: Clarissa Simental!
Clarissa is currently pursuing a bachelors in Electrical Engineering at Cal Poly Pomona. As a female engineer, she hopes to be able to educate and inspire others to pursue a career in STEAM. Throughout her career, she plans to maintain community engagement with programs like Dreams for Schools. When I’m not studying, she is usually in the kitchen trying to create new recipes. Her favorite DFS moment was being able to co-teach with two other women. This past summer was incredible because they were able to share experiences with one another. She is excited as this scholarship will relieve some financial burden while she obtains her degree. She will use it to pay for gas as she commutes to school, pay for books next semester, and buy groceries.
The entire DFS team would like to express our sincerest gratitude to Neudesic and their team members who participated in the scholarship review committee. Neduesic’s generosity and volunteer support is making a meaningful impact to advance education equity through DFS’ STEAM programs.
