NSF S-STEM Program

NSF S-STEM Program

The National Science Foundation is giving you the chance to win the “NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM)”. All students who are academically talented and low-income, demonstrate financial needs are eligible for the scholarships. The program encourages projects to recruit a diverse applicant pool that is inclusive of members of underrepresented groups (e.g., females, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, including Alaska Natives and Native Pacific Islanders, persons with disabilities, first generation college students, Veterans).  The program provides 60-80 awards of indirect funding amount of $70,000,000 to $95,000,000 for students who focus on educational developments.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science and to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare by supporting research and education in all fields of science and engineering.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the NSF Scholarship, the candidates must meet all the following criteria:

For the Institutions:

  • An institution may submit one proposal from each constituent college or school that awards eligible degrees. (For example, a university with a College of Engineering, a School of Life Sciences, and a College of Arts and Sciences could submit one proposal from each for a total of three proposals. However, within a College of Engineering, if the Department of Electrical Engineering were submitting a proposal, a proposal from the Department of Mechanical Engineering could be submitted only in a subsequent year. The two departments in this example could choose to submit a single joint proposal.)
  • An institution without constituent schools (for example, a 4-year college or a community college) may submit one proposal each year.
  • An institution that is part of a larger system is considered separate for proposal submission purposes if it is geographically separate from the other campus (es) and has its own chief academic officer.
  • For Strand 2 – Design and Development Type 2 Multi-Institutional Consortia, a proposal whose Principal Investigator is an educational or social science researcher in a program other than STEM does not count against the limit on the number of proposals submitted by institutions from S-STEM disciplines.
