Did you know that the Connecticut STEM Foundation sponsors scholarships for Connecticut students who are interested in STEM activities and pursuing careers in STEM fields? In keeping with its Vision and Mission to create a culture of support in Connecticut for students who are interested in STEM, the Connecticut STEM Foundation, Inc. has created a Three Tier Scholarship Program.

TIER ONE is designed to support Connecticut graduating seniors who have participated in the current year’s CT STEM Fair and plan to major in a STEM field at college. To help offset first-year college costs for these students, CT STEM Foundation grants two scholarships, each at a value of $2,500.

TIER TWO is designed to support Connecticut undergraduate high school students who want to explore STEM fields during the summer. A Summer Scholarship of up to $500 (depending on the summer STEM program cost to the student) is available for one of these students. Examples of summer STEM programs include any college/university summer STEM course, a summer STEM internship program, a summer science center STEM program, or a tuition high school summer STEM program.

TIER THREE serves the same objectives as Tier Two, the difference being that it is designed for Middle School students to help spur their interest in STEM upon entering high school. Application forms are available below for all three tiers of this program.

Application deadline for the College Scholarship Program is June 1, 2024. Application deadlines for both the Undergraduate Summer school program and the Middle School program are June 8, 2024.
