Stem Scholars Frequently Asked Questions
What is the STEM Scholars Program?
The STEM Scholars program is a five-year program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) starting in fall 2010. The program annually awards 10 renewable scholarships to incoming freshman or transfer students of approximately $3,800, increasing the group to 40 students in years four and five. Eligible students must select a major offered in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science, demonstrate academic excellence, and show financial need.
The Program Leadership Team will oversee this program, with the assistance of UW-Platteville administration, academic services, and faculty by specifically:
- Providing a structure that facilitates a strong network of students
- Encouraging participation in structured networking opportunities including mentoring, advising, and research
- Promoting opportunities for students such as internships and co-operative education with industry
- Supporting career selection and job placement
