Scholarship Opportunity for STEM and Allied Health Students

As part of the Strengthening the NCSG Partnership with the NCCCS to Enhance STEM-Based Learning program, NC Space Grant (NCSG) is offering a competitive scholarship opportunity for community college students majoring in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) disciplines at any campus in the NC Community College System (NCCCS). These $2,500 scholarships are competitive awards based on academic merit.

The Community College STEM Scholarship award will provide students with $2,500 in their sophomore year (Spring 2017 semester) as long as the student maintains at least a 3.0 GPA and meets other requirements of the award. This scholarship is based on academic merit and potential for successful matriculation into a 4-year degree program.  Awards will be distributed at the end of the semester pending the submission of required reports/projects.

Healthcare programs count as STEM! Application closes November 15. For more information, visit
