Program Summary

Program Summary

This program makes grants to institutions of higher education to support scholarships for academically talented students demonstrating financial need, enabling them to enter the STEM workforce or STEM graduate school following completion of an associate, baccalaureate, or graduate-level degree in science, technology, engineering or mathematics disciplines. Grantee institutions are responsible for selecting scholarship recipients, reporting demographic information about student scholars, and managing the S-STEM project at the institution. The program does not make scholarship awards directly to students; students should contact their institution’s Office of Financial Aid for this and other scholarship opportunities.

The program supports three types of projects. Awards for Institutional Capacity Building projects should not exceed $650,000. Awards for Design and Development Type 1 Single Institution projects should not exceed $1.0 million. Awards for Design and Development Type 2 Multi-Institutional Consortia projects should not exceed $5.0 million.

An Institution may submit one proposal (either as a single institution or as a member of a multi-institutional Design and Development consortium) from each constituent school or college that awards degrees in an eligible field.
