At Cell Signaling Technology® (CST®), we believe in the power and promise of science to solve the challenges we face as a global community. Innovation and collaboration are the tools we use to advance life sciences. CST® recognizes the importance of racial diversity in the workforce and understands that diversity is crucial to encourage different perspectives and ideas to foster and drive innovation (1,2).
Students of color are underrepresented in STEM programs and courses compared to their overall college enrollment rate. There is racial imbalance amongst STEM majors, evidenced by the fact that only 7.6 percent of all STEM bachelor's degrees were obtained by students of color in recent years (3). To help drive diversity and innovation, Cell Signaling Technology is proud to offer four $10,000 scholarships to high school senior students of color in Essex County, Massachusetts that are accepted and enrolled in an undergraduate STEM related major.
