Global Engineering STEM Program
S-STEM Program Overview
Scholarship Awards have been made for 2015-2016 Academic year and the application website will reopen during Summer 2014
The Tennessee State University Scholarships for Preparing the Global Engineering for Tomorrow's Workforce (GE-STEM) will annually provide 30 undergraduate scholarships, averaging $5,000 each to promising engineering students with sophomore or junior classification. The scholarships will be awarded to students who are academically talented and financially disadvantaged to explore opportunities for undergraduate research in engineering disciplines and professional development through a global experience to better prepare for a professional engineering career. The professional development program provides students mentoring, peer-tutoring and pre-college counseling opportunities. Senior GE-STEM scholars who enroll in professional development programs are involved in organizing on-campus academic mentoring and tutoring sessions. GE-STEM scholars enrolled in the research programs are poised to engage in senior level research and enroll in competitive graduate educational programs. The research experience allows sophomore and junior level students to perform research activities in state-of-the-art facilities on topics such as cyber security, transportation, computation fluid dynamics, renewable energy, and robotics. GE-STEM scholars present or publish their research and professional development experience and demonstrate their global learning via language competency or a foreign exchange experience.
