Creating a Scholarship for Women in STEM with Ally Orr | Episode 120

Ally is a senior marketing student at Boise State University and will graduate in the spring of 2022. Ally created a scholarship for women at Boise State studying STEM, Medicine, and Law after a Boise State professor said to recruit fewer women in those areas of study. Ally has raised over $140,000 on GoFundMe and she plans to continue fundraising for the newly created “Women in STEM, Medicine, and Law” scholarship and build its message into something even bigger.
