Apply for an S-STEM scholarship

Thursday, December 12, 2013

Through Sept. 10, St. Cloud State is accepting applications for up to a dozen, two-year $18,200 scholarships for students pursuing information systems, computer science and computer engineering majors.

Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the scholarships are expected to increase recruitment, retention and graduation of students including women, students of color and American Indians, first-generation college students and transfer students from community colleges.

This is the final round of scholarships from the $600,000 Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) program managed by professors Susantha Herath, Jayantha Herath and Dennis Guster.

To apply, email your name and HuskyNet ID to sstem@stcloudstate.edu. You will be enrolled in a D2L site and will receive instructions to complete the application online. D2L is St. Cloud State's online course management system.

Through 2020, 73 percent of new science, technology, engineering and mathematics jobs will be in computing, with only 40,000 graduates to fill 135,000 jobs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

St. Cloud State goals include strengthening student support structures and interdisciplinary collaborations, enhancing faculty and peer mentoring, developing a multidisciplinary research group with exceptional advising, mentor and tutor, and providing directions and skills for a successful life after graduation.
