  • Catalyst Scholars

    Catalyst Scholars are a premier fellowship of young girls committed to Catalyzing Courage for themselves and their communities. In Spring of 2015, InHerShoes awarded 5 scholarships to 5 girls to create community projects that #CatalyzeCourage at their high school. Scholarship winners received an InHerShoes mentor, gained guidance toward networking opportunities with women in a career field of their choice, and took part in a hands-on experiential learning curriculum that takes turns their ideas into realities. Upon completion, all scholarship recipients receive an opportunity to present their project at the following year's summit.

    CATALYZE COURAGE TO

    BE COURAGE

    "I have learned that getting to know someone else's view in life can make a difference for your own future and the future of others. I want to spread the experience of "human communication" among my peers!"

    CATALYZE COURAGE TO

    STAND FOR JUSTICE

    "I want to empower young girls to find their inner voice through real life situations that might place women in an inferior role. I want girls to actually become involved with an issue they care about and do something about it."

    CATALYZE COURAGE TO

    DEFY THE ODDS

    "I'm putting the resources available from the InHerShoes and the national Girls Who Code organization to establish a super club at my high school that equips girls with the tools and confidence to succeed in the male dominated field of technology. I'll do this by using the Girls Who Code Curriculum and the fantastic mentors from InHerShoes!"

    CATALYZE COURAGE TO

    SPREAD COMPASSION

    "My goal is to start a club at my school that will spread happiness to people in need and bring a smile to the faces of those struggling; 'The Happiness Project' will use recycled materials to create small gifts of kindness and brighten someones day."

    CATALYZE COURAGE TO

    TRANSFORM

    "So many young women are held back by fear, yet we have this eagerness to try something new. I believe that all young women should try something new, knowing that failure is an option, but even after failing multiple times, continue trying until we reach success. I'm empowering girls to conquer the fear of change."
