Reshmi Ranjith, winner of the LabRoots Fall STEM Scholarship


LabRoots, the leading provider of educational and interactive virtual events for tech innovators, engineers, and scientists from around the world, is excited to announce Reshmi Ranjith as the winner of the LabRoots Fall STEM scholarship, awarding her $2,000 to support her in her academic pursuits in the STEM fields.

Ranjith is a senior at Westhill High School, who plans on attending Georgia Institute of Technology next fall, majoring in computer science. She has taken computer science courses since her sophomore year, which has fueled her passion and inspiration for majoring in it. She has won the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Award, served as a tutor for struggling students and has already secured an on-going internship in the Stamford Government’s Technology Department.

In her free time outside of her academic pursuits, she has served as the co-president of her school’s Girls Who Code club for two years. When girls were out number three to one in her first coding class, she was inspired to start the club, promoting computer science and coding among girls, helping the members learn the fundamentals. She is also part of her school's Future Business Leaders of America club, which features talks from people in the finance industry and teaches leadership skills.

The fall scholarship was opened to a worldwide audience of students, and LabRoots saw hundreds of students apply from all over the world. The selection process was very difficult, as all of the applicants were excellent examples of students seeking to promote science and mathematics. The scholarship will aid Ranjith in funding for her academic pursuits.

LabRoots has seen great success in the first year of the scholarship program and is excited to see it continue in 2018. Those interested in applying for the Spring 2018 STEM Scholarship can apply after the application period opens March 1, 2018, on the LabRoots site here.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
