The deadline for our annual Supporting STEM Scholarship is around the corner, so we thought we would highlight this amazing opportunity!
Our Supporting STEM Scholarship is geared towards current and incoming undergraduate college students who are committed to the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields of study. We believe that these areas of study are essential to developing the latest technologies that will secure our future and ensure the long-term success of America’s economy.
The scholarship is a singular award of $1,000.00 to be split evenly between the fall and spring semester.
