National Science Foundation S-STEM Scholarship

Estrella Mountain seeks to recruit students who are pursuing degrees in the fields of computer science

and engineering. Although we seek to increase the number of historically underrepresented students in

these areas, all students who meet the following criteria are encouraged to apply and will be considered

in the process. S-STEM scholarship recipients will receive financial support and be assigned to a

faculty mentor who will: provide advising by creating an individual education plan, provide

community learning/internship opportunities, and provide academic support to ensure satisfactory

progress in their courses and goals.

Each scholarship recipient will receive a one-semester award of $2500 to be distributed in Fall 2020.
