At ABC Wildlife, there is a constant need to support women who are critically underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

ABC Wildlife is a woman-owned corporation which has the aim to provide financial aid to women pursuing their dreams in the scientific world.

That way, the number of women studying and influencing the future of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) will increase.

This scholarship was created by Urban Wildlife Manager Rebecca Fyffe.
