STEM Takes Flight Scholarships

Virginia’s community college students pursuing studies in science,

technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) fields statewide have

access to new scholarships, research experiences, internships and courses

thanks to a two-year NASA grant to the Virginia Space Grant Consortium.

Community College faculty in STEM fields will have access to professional

development at NASA.

The Consortium’s new program, STEM Takes Flight at Virginia’s Community

Colleges, provides $5,000 mentored scholarships, paid industry internships,

NASA research experiences, and new courses to foster STEM career

awareness and workplace skills. The goal is community college retention

in STEM academic tracks through graduation with an associate’s degree or

transfer to a four-year institution.
