APT Students would apply for the STEM-T, Technology

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) recently awarded ACC a $328,900 grant to provide 125 scholarships to eligible STEM students. All STEM majors are eligible to apply. Scholarships up to $2,500 will be awarded and will help with tuition, fees, and books.

In addition, the National Science Foundation funds scholarships for students working on a degree or certificate in Biotechnology or Environmental Science and Technology. The S-STEM scholarship can be used for tuition, fees, and books, and it provides a living allowance for eligible students.

The eligibility requirements are the same for both scholarships, and include economic need, full-time status, declared STEM major, GPA, and a limited work schedule.
