Developing and retaining STEM talent in CNY for economic advancement

Scholarship Applications

The CNY STEM Scholars program is a partnership between SRC, King + King, Schneider Packaging Equipment Company, C&S Companies, Carrier Corporation, the CNY STEM Hub, and Partners for Education and Business. This program is for high school seniors entering a higher education program in the fall of 2017.
 
These scholarships are designed to support the best and brightest students in the Central New York Region in their quest to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields in college. All scholarships available through this website are not based on financial need; rather applicants are judged on their academic achievement and extracurricular activities, as well as the essay and an interview.
 
Each scholarship will provide financial assistance in varying amounts – see details below. Applicants can only be awarded one scholarship that includes an internship as that is an important part of each individual program. 
 
Scholarship applications for 4-year scholarships are now closed. Selections were made in April and students were notified in May 2017. Scholarship applications for 2-year scholarships are due August 11, 2017 and students will be notified toward the end of August.
