How do I become an NSF S-STEM scholar?

For the Fall 2024 semester, please complete an interest form: Interest Form: Fall 2024

Note, there is no need to apply. All accepted STEM students who meet the qualifications for the scholarship are considered, but completing the form guarantees that we will look at your packet

Scholars are selected by the Project Management Team from the pool of incoming first year students based on academic talent and unmet financial need (Pell-eligibility is required).

Students are interviewed by the Project Management Team and scholarships are awarded based on drive, focus, interest in their field of study, and academic talent.


“I am most looking forward to seeing students excel and get started on a successful career path that will ensure they make a big impact in the world after college.”
