The Texas Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (T-STEM) Challenge Scholarship Program was established by House Bill 2910, passed by the 82nd Legislature, Regular Session in 2011.
The T-STEM program is funded through a grant from the Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation, provided to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board for the 2012-2013 biennium.
Grants awarded under the T-STEM program allow community and technical colleges to provide merit-based scholarships to qualifying, high-achieving full-time students pursuing careers in STEM and related fields.
Student eligibility is based on grade point average and successful completion of courses that lead to degrees and careers in specified STEM fields.
Awards will be granted first-come-first-serve based on eligibility. With over 200 scholarships to award, it is NOT too late to apply!
