Texas Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (T-STEM) Challenge Scholarship Program

The Texas Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (T-STEM) Challenge Scholarship Program was established by House Bill 2910, passed by the 82nd Legislature, Regular Session in 2011. The T-STEM program is funded through a grant from the Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation provided to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Grants awarded under the T-STEM program allow community and technical colleges to provide merit-based scholarships to qualifying, high-achieving full-time students pursuing careers in STEM and related fields. Student eligibility is based on grade point average and successful completion of courses that lead to degrees and careers in specified STEM fields.

Participating colleges partner with local business and industry to identify local employment needs in T-STEM occupations and to develop part-time employment opportunities for scholarship recipients.

The T-STEM program will award scholarships through Academic Year 2019.

 T-STEM Request for Applications:

  • RFA 2016-2018   (Academic Years 2017 and 2018 Grant Period)
  • RFA 2015   (Academic Year 2016 Grant Period)
