NEW: STEM CONNECT Scholarship
- STEM CONNECT awards scholarships to and provides community support to academically talented, low-income students with interest in careers that require strong skills in mathematics or computer science.
- STEM CONNECT Scholarships are need-based, with a maximum of $8,000/year. A student’s financial need is determined by U.S. Department of Education rules based on information provided with a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application.
- Scholarships are renewable subject to the program’s eligibility criteria for up to four total years at UNL or for two years at SCC or WNCC. SCC and WNCC students who transfer to UNL are eligible for two additional years of support at UNL.
- Applications are now open to students who will be first-time freshmen starting in Fall 2020 at UNL, SCC or WNCC or are current first-year students. Students at UNL or applying to UNL should apply in MyRED. SCC and WNCC students should apply here.
- At UNL you must be majoring in mathematics, computer science, computer engineering, or software engineering at the time the scholarship is awarded.
- Scholars must maintain a 2.75 GPA in their first year of college or their first year after transferring to UNL and at least a 3.0 GPA in subsequent years. See our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for additional eligibility information.
