Hyundai has introduced the Hyundai Women in STEM Scholarship to help the next generation of women leaders. The scholarship helps close the gender gap in engineering, mobility and autonomous driving fields by awarding female students interested in pursuing an education and career in those disciplines. Five female STEM students will receive a scholarship in the amount of $10,000 each.

“At Hyundai, we understand that building a better future starts with investing in the young women inventing it today,” said Angela Zepeda, CMO, Hyundai Motor America, “We hope this scholarship program helps funnel more women into the STEM fields, resulting in a significant impact to the gender gap that still exists today.”

Participants must be high school seniors or undergraduate students who are female, reside in the United States and wish to pursue a STEM-related field of education. Eligible students can apply for the award by writing an essay of 500 words or more on why they chose to pursue a STEM-related field and what drives them to be better.

ServNet has announced the opening of its 2020 Scholarship Program, designed to help ServNet auction employees and their families pursue the dream of higher education. The ServNet Scholarship program assists full-time ServNet auction employees, their children, stepchildren and grandchildren who plan to pursue education in college or vocational school programs.

Up to 10 awards totaling $20,000 are available for aspiring undergraduate students in 2020. The awards will be given in increments of five awards of $2,500 to students attending a four-year college or university, and five awards of $1,500 for students attending a two-year college or pursuing an auto-related degree at a vocational-technical school.

“As the leaders of family-owned businesses ourselves, we ServNet owners take a deep personal interest in our employees,” said Ryan Clark, owner of Greater Rockford Auto Auction and a member of ServNet’s Board of Directors. “ServNet’s scholarship program is a great way for us to encourage the members of our auction families and to help lay the groundwork for the next generation that follows.”

Clark notes that ServNet’s scholarship program has been well received, and that several students have applied for - and been awarded - the ServNet scholarship in multiple years. The application deadline for this year’s scholarship awards is March 31 at 3 p.m. (EDT).
