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 for the 2012-2013 biennium.
The second Request for Applications, for funding during fiscal year 2014, was approved by the Board of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board on January 24, 2013.
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.
