Developing and retaining STEM talent in CNY for economic advancement

Scholarship Applications

The CNY STEM Scholars program is a partnership between SRC, King + King, Marquardt Switches, 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 2018.
 
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 and an internship. 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 NO LONGER ACCEPTED. Selections will made in April and students will be notified in May 2018.

Click "Enter Application" to begin your application. You'll have the option to save your application and continue it at another time by clicking on "Save and continue survey later" at the top of each page. If you have any questions, please feel free to use our contact us form and a member of our scholarship program team will get back to you.
