Description:S-STEM awards grants to institutions of higher education to provide scholarships for academically talented and financially needy students to empower them to enter the workforce following completion of an associate, baccalaureate, or graduate level degree in science and engineering disciplines. Grantee institutions will select scholarship recipients, report demographic data about your student scholars, and manage the S-STEM project. Projects that focus on underrepresented groups, including women, minority groups, and veterans are particularly encouraged. This program is an excellent recruitment tool for high school seniors to continue their STEM studies at the postsecondary level. High schools should consider working with universities and colleges that either have this grant or intend to apply for it in order to build bridges to college for financially needy secondary students with an interest in STEM.
