Exelon and Exelon Foundation surprise nine womanish STEM scholars with full- lift council literacy
Nine youthful women— graduates of the Exelon STEM Leadership Academy– entered the good news that the Exelon Foundation will be paying for their council education. Last time’s education donors surprised the new winners, letting them know that the Foundation will pay all costs associated with council, including education, room and board and all other charges that are n’t covered by other verified literacy, civil and state subventions, and work- study programs. The total value of the nine literacy is roughly$ 1 million.
The Exelon STEM Leadership Academy is a free, week-long experience for current 10th and 11th grade girls from different and low- income communities held each summer in the Philadelphia, Washington,D.C./ Baltimore and Chicago metro regions. Further than 650 girls have shared over the last four times.
The STEM Leadership Academy Scholarship provides donors with a clear pathway from participation in the Academy to council and also entry into the energy pool, immaculately as an Exelon hand. Launched in 2021, the education is available to STEM Leadership Academy alumnae who are graduating from high academy or who have formerly begun theirpost-secondary education at a two- or four- time educational institution.
“ We want to insure these outstanding youthful women the occasion and fiscal inflexibility to study at the council of their choice, ” said Paula Conrad, vice chairman of Commercial Relations for Exelon. “ It’s not just a education, but, hopefully, a path to unborn leadership at Exelon. ”
During the call to surprise this time’s education winners, 2021 education philanthropist Nesochim Iheanyiigwe said, “ You ’re joining a family of people who are going to support you, who are going to help you be successful and are just really going to have your reverse. So, know that you’re going to be supported in every way and I ’m agitated to see you all come amazing youthful women. ”
