Marshall’s NSF S-STEM Program: Project Work Studio
About the NSF S-STEM Scholars Program
A well-educated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce is a significant contributor to maintaining the competitiveness of the U.S. in the global economy. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has addressed the need for such a high quality workforce in STEM disciplines by establishing NSF Scholarship-STEM program to support the academically talented students with financial need who are pursuing or intend to pursue STEM-related degrees in higher education.
Marshall University has been awarded an NSF Scholarship-STEM Grant that provides scholarships for new students, women in particular, majoring in computer science, engineering, and technology. This scholarship program, which began in the Fall of 2021, targets academically talented students who demonstrate financial need with an interest in STEM.
NSF S-STEM Scholars Program with Project Work Studio
S-STEM Scholars will receive an opportunity to participate in Project Work Studio which is intended to provide S-STEM Scholars a unique opportunity to develop technical and professional skills through real-world project experiences with faculty mentorship and workshops to develop professional skills. The goal of the program is to prepare students for a successful career in their chosen STEM field after graduation.
Each student selected receives $7,500 per year over the course of four years, as long as the student is enrolled full-time and remains in good academic standing. Additionally, a new laptop is provided in the first year and traveling cost to fields trip and conference presentations will be covered by the scholarship.
