NC Space Grant (NCSG) is offering a competitive scholarship opportunity for community college students majoring in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) disciplines at any campus in the NC Community College System.

The Community College STEM Scholarship award will provide students with $1,000 in their sophomore year (Spring 2019 semester) as long as the student maintains at least a 3.0 GPA and meets other requirements of the award. This scholarship is based on academic merit and potential for successful matriculation into a 4-year degree program. Awards will be distributed at the end of the semester pending the submission of required reports/projects.

Underrepresented minorities, females, and students with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
