STEM Fellowship Volunteer Awards
Congratulations to the recipients of the STEM Fellowship Volunteer Awards! These volunteers have showcased outstanding qualities and skills in their role at STEM Fellowship. Take a look at what these amazing volunteers have said about their time at STEM Fellowship so far!
December 2020 – April 2021
Working at SF has been incredible! The organization does a great job fostering an environment that allows students to grow into people they’re proud of!
Through volunteering with STEM Fellowship, I had the opportunity to develop the Consulting program as the Team Lead. It has been a pleasure being able to work with dedicated SciComm team members to launch and expand the program for STEM students in Canada.
April 2021 – August 2021
As the founding Outreach Team Lead of STEMpowerment, I have had the amazing opportunity to form connections with traditionally underrepresented groups in STEM which have included students identifying as rural residents, refugees, and as Indigenous. Seeing these students participate in our mentorship and research programs has been inspiring and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue shaping and expanding STEM Fellowship’s programs.
Through volunteering to organize the Scholarly Writing Challenge, I have enjoyed developing opportunities for high school students to be recognized for their research! I have had a wonderful experience working with the kind, collaborative, and dedicated people at STEM Fellowship.
August 2021 – December 2021
Volunteering with STEM Fellowship has truly been such an amazing experience for me and one that I will forever be proud of. I was able to develop my collaboration and problem-solving skills, all while working alongside some of the most inspiring and hardworking individuals I have ever met! I am so grateful to be a volunteer with STEM Fellowship and actively implement programs that provide youth from across Canada with opportunities to advance their academic and professional careers in STEM.
My time at STEM Fellowship has been amazing. I am so grateful to receive this award but I don’t think I would be receiving it without the help of my mentors at STEM Fellowship! This entire experience has helped me stay curious about everything STEM. Thank you so much.
July 2020 – September 2020
Volunteering with STEM Fellowship has allowed me to connect with other students across Canada who are passionate about science education. It has been an amazing experience!
As the current Associate STEMpowerment Officer and former Mentorships Team Lead, I was able to create and lead many new programs: I redesigned the STEMpowerment Mentorship program to have a wider reach, started the STEMpowerment blog, helped lead the Connecting Through COVID webinar series, and most notably, founded the PowerUp Mentorship Program. My experience at STEM Fellowship has been tremendously unique and eye-opening and I cherish the opportunity to continue working with students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds in STEM
March 2020 – June 2020
Volunteering with STEM Fellowship has been extremely rewarding. I am always grateful for the freedom to innovate which has led me to contribute to the foundations of the High School Chapters program, as well as bringing the Indicium Research Conference to a national-scale. Being able to provide leadership and research opportunities to youth across Canada is what drives me to continue volunteering and I look forward to expanding some of our current programs under the University Branches committee.
January 2022 – July 2022
My name is Muskan and within STEM Fellowship, I am the National Indicium Lead. Indicium is an undergraduate research competition composed of mentor-led projects working towards a showcasing at the National Indicium Research Conference for an opportunity at a scholarly publication. Working with STEM Fellowship has entailed much organizational operation and creative problem solving, which I have enjoyed taking on with curiosity and gratitude. It is a platform by which I have gotten to work alongside many talented people from mentors and mentees, to SF executive members, to guest speakers and judges, and many more. STEM Fellowship is an interconnected network of ambitious individuals interested in learning and sharing science, and for that, it is a worthwhile initiative to pursue.
Volunteering for STEM Fellowship over the past three years has been an immensely fulfilling experience that has provided me with countless opportunities to make a community impact. I have been able to interact with and mentor students across Canada, develop a video project for the national science fair, contribute to publications, and, most notably, organize a research proposal competition for underrepresented youth. Beyond this, STEM Fellowship has allowed me to meet some of the most captivating and ambitious people I know who have helped me grow as a person and a leader.
