The Born Seekers Fellowship
Perricone MD and The Scientista Foundation are in search for bold, visionary young women in STEM who are looking to make an impact in their respective fields. The Scientista Born Seekers Video Contest aims to identify women in STEM who embody the spirit of a "Born Seeker" - someone who is in the passionate pursuit of the truth. The work they do pushes boundaries and meaningfully impacts society on a local, national, and often global level.
About the Fellowship All eligible women are invited to submit a three minute video answering the question: How do you embody a Born Seeker? Your answer should share your unique story of how you currently embody or hope to embody the values of curiosity, drive and perseverance. For information about submission criteria, please review our Application Guidelines.
The women selected as our 2018 Born Seekers will build skills in communication and leadership, serving as role models for the next generation of scientists, engineers, doctors, and STEM professionals. Our four finalists will be invited to present at the annual Scientista Symposium, where they will give a ten minute talk sharing their unique Born Seeker story. The Scientista Symposium is the leading conference for college and graduate women in STEM. One fellowship will be given to a high school Scientista.
