STEM Scholars can potentially receive a four-year STEM degree tuition free made possible through a partnership between Mott Community College (MCC) and Michigan State University (MSU) as part of MCC’s new STEM Scholars program. The program offers students pursuing a degree in a STEM, opportunities for scholarships, professional development and paid internships. The deadline to apply is March 24, 2019. Apply here.
The STEM Scholars program is made possible through two, five-year National Science Foundation (NSF) grants the College has received, the S-STEM Scholarship Program and the LSAMP Program.
The S-STEM Scholarship is an NSF grant-funded program enabling MCC to provide eligible students with a two-year associate’s degree tuition free. Students awarded an S-STEM Scholarship at MCC, AND who are accepted to MSU’s College of Natural Sciences, are also eligible to apply for an additional two-year S-STEM Scholarship to complete their bachelor’s degree tuition free. S-STEM scholarships are awarded to academically talented, low-income students intending to pursue a STEM career.
MCC is also part of a consortium of Michigan universities and community colleges that has been awarded a five-year, $4.25 million grant by the NSF to help increase participation and graduation rates among underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering and math fields through the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program.
LSAMP is aimed at increasing the number of students from underrepresented minority populations who complete a STEM bachelor’s degree program. LSAMP students will have an opportunity to participate in paid undergraduate research and internships, while working with professional STEM mentors, and benefit from extensive academic support including advising, peer and professional tutoring, and participation in the MCC Summer Bridge Pre-College Program.
By applying to the STEM Scholars program at MCC, students may be eligible for one or both of these programs. To qualify, students must be enrolled at the College full-time, be pursuing a degree in a STEM field, maintain a 3.0 grade point average, and participate in STEM Scholar activities.
A STEM Field is any discipline pertaining to science, technology, engineering or mathematics. This includes, but is not limited to astronomy, biology, chemistry/biochemistry, computer science, engineering, environmental science, geology, mathematics and physics. It does not include health sciences.
