Stephen and Ayesha Curry Foundation Scholarship Program for Girls in STEM

Stephen and Ayesha Curry

Riley Morrison, a 9-year old basketball fan wrote a letter to 3-time champion Stephen Curry a letter asking why him his shoes weren't accessible for girls. Stephen was so blown away that he immediately took action to change his shoes, his business, and his perspective. He decided to create a shoe for Riley but he wasn't comfortable profiting off her shoe design, so he joined with Under Armour and turned his design into a scholarship program that would impact girls for years to come.
Shortly after, he and his wife, Ayesha, officially publicized the launch of a STEM scholarship program for young women from the San Francisco’s Bay Area.

Earnings from sales of the shoe will fund the annual scholarship to students who have shown an aptitude for overcoming adversity, catalyzing change within her community and exhibiting excellence in a STEM-related field of study.

The scholarship is awarded over two years and requires the recipient to take two or more STEM-related classes each semester while maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA.

The scholarship deadline VARIES, and the awards are up to $30,000.
