STEM Scholarship


LEADING THE WAY IN EDUCATION - In the spirit and name of BWOPA's charter member, The Victoria Redus Scholarship Fund supports young emerging Black women on their academic journey who have an interest in (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) STEM related fields.

BWOPA understands the importance of investing in our future.  Recent employment data indicates an extreme shortage of black women employed in STEM fields.  Thus, BWOPA's educational strategy to support young, college going African American women inevitably benefits the economic vitality of the black community in a major way. 

Our aim is to lead the way in providing African American Women access and opportunities to STEM related fields while strengthening our leadership pipeline for equality and equity for all.  It's our time to level the playing field. 

Contribute today to support BWOPA as we lead the way to building our legacy of power, civic participation and equity for all. 

Our goal is to raise $25,000 to provide scholarships to up to eight (8) young African American women.  At least one from within the BWOPA chapter areas who on their way to college/university with a focus study in STEM. 

We hope that you will choose to support our mission.  Your tax-deductible contribution, large or small, will make a difference.  Can we count of your contribution to support our next generation of leaders -- $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000?

CLICK HERE to help our emerging STEM leaders of tomorrow.  Donate Today!


Ms. Victoria, affectionately known as "Queen Victoria" served as Professor of Mathematics at Laney College for over 30 years.  Ms. Redus was a charter member of BWOPA and served as the Scholarship Committee Chair.  She was an avid traveler who visited every country except Antarctica.  In Victoria's honor and in her memory, we are proud to offer this scholarship in her name.
