The acronym STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Careers in the STEM fields have been spotlighted in the last decade. Being a STEM major gives a student confidence in landing a job because the STEM graduate 2012 unemployment rate is the lowest ever, only 3%. [full report].

As a student looking for opportunities, you may qualify for some extra financial support for tuition in the next semester. If you have an interest in one of the STEM fields, and you are thinking of attaining a STEM degree in the next three years, you have access to fantastic scholarship opportunities. One of them is Texas Woman's University's (TWU) Scholarships in STEM (S-STEM) Program. This special TWU scholarship program is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and targets STEM majors, with preference given to sophomores, to build a strong cohort of STEM scholars at TWU. The cohort will be closely mentored and advised to take a sequence of STEM courses which will lead to a Certificate in QUANTITATIVE/COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES.

Current funding for the TWU S-STEM program is through a four-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The the title and the grant reference for the current TWU S-STEM is: "Quantitative and Analytical Sciences for Academic Reinforcement and Success (QuASARS)" - NSF grant number 1154394

TWU was awarded its first S-STEM grant in August 2008 and this grant continues to support S-STEM scholars. The title and the grant reference for this S-STEM award is: "Scholarships for Undergraduates: Focus on Computational Biology" - NSF grant number 0806963

These programs will provide scholarships in amounts up to $10,000/yr to students majoring in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields that wish to pursue a STEM career path and also demonstrate both academic potential and financial need.

Applications are currently being accepted for scholarship awards for FALL 2014.   Completed applications (including TWO letters of recommendation) must be received by July 1, 2014 for consideration for an award in FALL 2014 and October 1, 2014 for consideration for SPRING 2014

The STEM fields are:

  • biological sciences (excluding medicine and other clinical fields)
  • physical sciences, including physics, chemistry, astronomy, and materials science
  • mathematical sciences
  • computer and information sciences
  • geosciences
  • engineering
  • technology areas associated with the preceding fields (for example: biotechnology, chemical technology, engineering technology, information technology, etc.)
