At Chemours, we believe that everyone should have access to STEM education and this program delivers on that belief.
In our corporate hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, the Future of Chemistry Scholarship provides direct support for talented students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) at a Historically Black College or University (HBCU). Consistent with the company’s broader Corporate Responsibility Commitments, which includes goals on increased diversity, the Future of Chemistry Scholarship program is one of the many ways we’re broadening access to STEM education in the communities where we operate.
In partnership with the City of Wilmington and HBCU Week, these scholarships are part of a 13-year commitment—through 2030—to support increased numbers of Black students from the Wilmington area who are pursuing STEM fields of study.
