The Hispanic Heritage Group (HHG) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory will award its 2021 STEM Scholarships during an online ceremony Tuesday, July 20, at 4 p.m.

The HHG is providing financial awards of up to $500 each to 15 deserving Long Island students of Hispanic heritage pursuing a career in one of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math) disciplines.

The scholarship is made possible this year in large part by the generosity of the Brookhaven Lab Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Office, which contributed $1,500 toward the program, and to its members who helped make the program possible, despite the challenges posed by the global pandemic.
