Original post made by Member, Dublin, on Oct 1, 2021

Esha Cyril, a current senior at Quarry Lane School in Dublin and a resident of Pleasanton, is one of the five winners and only high schooler to get the prestigious 2021 Hyundai Women in STEM Scholarship.

The Hyundai Women in STEM Scholarship is 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 who are driven by better receive a scholarship of $10,000 each.

The scholarship program helps funnel more women into the STEM fields, resulting in a significant impact on the gender gap that still exists today.

The participants are high school seniors or undergraduate students who are female, reside in the United States, and wish to pursue a STEM-related field of education.
