The scholarship project is under the direction of Co-Principal Investigators, Physics instructor Dr. Chris Sedlack and Drafting Technology instructor Larry Shacklett.
The NSF S-STEM program was established by the National Science Foundation in accordance with the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998. The Act reflects the national need to increase substantially the number of American scientists and engineers. SCC's S-STEM program will fund up to ten students per year until 2015. The project promotes full-time enrollment, academic achievement, and successful transfer and completion of an associate's degree or transfer for completion of a bachelor’s degree in STEM majors or programs.
There are a limited number of scholarships. The selection process is competitive and the award will be based on the amount of financial need, up to and including 100% tuition and books. It is a two-year renewable scholarship.
