Future of STEM Scholars Initiative (FOSSI)
The American Chemistry Council is proud to be a Founding Partner of the Future of STEM Scholars Initiative (FOSSI), with the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, Chemours and The HBCU Week Foundation.
FOSSI is national, industry-wide program providing scholarships and professional development opportunities for students majoring in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
Through scholarships, internship opportunities, mentoring and leadership training, FOSSI creates pathways for more underrepresented groups to enter and succeed in STEM careers within the chemical industry.
FOSSI aims to bring together the chemical industry’s collective might to make a significant impact on the future chemical industry workforce.
