The main goal of the ABC Wildlife is to emphasize the importance of introducing diversity in every scientific field from biology to chemical engineering, being that only 13% of women are engineering professionals and a mere 7.2% are engaged in the field of mechanical engineering.

This means that they are underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) so the scholarship is there to help and financial support women who are pursuing their dreams in the scientific world.

The foundation believes that the scholarship will increase the number of women studying.
