The purpose of the competition is to provide encouragement to New Jersey high school women who have chosen to undertake a science, technology, engineering, or math course of study.
This year, applicants from all parts of New Jersey displayed especially high academic performance, were active in a wide variety of extracurricular activities, and received exceptional support from their recommenders. Essays were well written and thought-provoking, enlightening our review committee about the lives and aspirations of our applicants, and about the accomplishments of inspirational New Jersey women scientists.

Workplace gender inequity extends way beyond stereotypical male and female roles. While misogyny gets some attention, other gender inequities often get overlooked. Preference by majority in the “other” gender spectrum to stay invisible often leads to lack of role models and sometimes, unintended perpetuation of stereotypes.
Association for Women in Science New Jersey chapter is organizing this diversity event to discuss real life challenges faced by many of us. Jennifer Long, a veteran military combatant will share her experience of fighting bias in the military, a direst work place for gender minority.
James Millonig, Senior Associate Dean of School of Graduate Studies, Rutgers University will discuss how gender minority can thrive in science and in higher education.
The objective is to raise awareness and dispel myths for improved perceptions about workplace fairness,
“Science, Not Silence”
AWIS New Jersey partnered with the New Jersey March for Science to support the national mission:
“The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.”
The march organized in Trenton war memorial by Prof. Matthew Buckley (Founder) and Elizabeth Meyer (Lead organizer) drew more than 3,000 peaceful and non-partisan scientists, supporters of science and advocates for evidence-based policies.
