      Hi! GiveTeens20 presentations are currently available only in the Bay Area right now but we are hoping to change that soon! Follow us on Facebook or Instagram to keep up with us. Until then, you can watch out career videos on YouTube

      Best of luck!

    If I were talking a gap year, can I still apply for this scholarship? I have registered to enroll in a college for fall 2019.

      Thank you for reaching out! Only students enrolling this year will be eligible to apply this year. I hope you apply next year to the Femme 4 STEM scholarship.
