On October 3rd, 2024, Women & Hi Tech will host its signature biennial event, the Leading Light Awards and Scholarship Gala (LLAs) at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis, IN. During this gala, at least $50,000 in scholarships and grants will be awarded to female-identifying students pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) degrees at Indiana colleges and universities. Additionally, 10 outstanding STEM professionals will be recognized across a diverse array of award categories. Scholarship applications and award nominations for this prestigious opportunity are open now!

This year’s LLAs mark Women & Hi Tech’s Silver Jubilee. 25 years ago, the founders of Women & Hi Tech planted a seed to elevate Indiana’s women working or studying in STEM.

“Women & Hi Tech is looking forward to a monumental 2024 Leading Light Awards and Scholarship Gala (LLAs), as we celebrate an important milestone for our organization, our 25th Anniversary,” said Women & Hi Tech President Joy Neely. “We will take time to reflect on the significant progress made in STEM over the past two-plus decades and celebrate the recent achievements of STEM talent in Central Indiana.”

Women & Hi Tech invites qualified parties across Indiana to submit scholarship applications and award nominations until July 1, 2024. Candidates will be evaluated by an independent panel of professionals from across STEM industries and backgrounds.

From high school seniors entering a STEM degree program to women who blaze trails in their careers, the Leading Light Awards has something to offer for all. With an expected attendance of 700 guests, this event is an outstanding opportunity for sponsoring organizations to grow brand recognition as Indiana STEM trailblazers, meet and connect with the Indiana STEM community, and celebrate and inspire employees, clients, and customers.
