WWS Committee Chair
The mission of the Albert Dorman Honors College Women With STEAM (WWS) Alumnae Initiative is quite simple – engage, empower, and incentivize the next generation of female leaders in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture, and Mathematics. Our inaugural committee consists of successful young women who have earned degrees ranging from Bachelors and Master degrees in engineering disciplines to PhDs and MDs.
This year’s committee was extremely impressed with the range of interests, experiences, and accomplishments set forth by the first Women With STEAM applicants. Choosing the recipients of the Women With STEAM scholarship was made difficult by the strength of the applicant pool, but the committee is proud to have selected a well-deserving group of young women to receive both financial and personal support from the WWS Alumnae Initiative. Our dedicated alumnae are looking forward to providing mentorship and guidance to the future STEAM leaders who will be starting their academic careers with the Albert Dorman Honors College at NJIT this fall.
Congratulations to Karen Ayoub, Lauren Hutnik, Srushti Karra, Ridhi Mehta, and Annaleigh Potterton, the 2016 Women with STEAM scholarship recipients!
