1,000 Dreams Fund Announces Launch of New Face of Tech Challenge to Fund the STEAM Dreams of Young Women in U.S.
In celebration of International Women’s Day 2018, the 1,000 Dreams Fund and HARMAN are teaming up for a second year to give a big boost to young women pursuing their career dreams in STEAM (science, tech, engineering, arts, and math)!
This year’s New Face of Tech Challenge is back with an expanding funding focus from STEM to STEAM. And we are offering up $10,000 in funding – $2,000 to five young women who are pursuing careers in STEAM in inspiring ways!
Did you notice that we are adding an “A” for arts this year?!
