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

The Texas Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (T-STEM) Challenge Scholarship Program provides grants to allow community and technical colleges to provide merit-based scholarships to qualifying, high-achieving students in STEM and related 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 program was established by House Bill 2910, passed by the 82nd Legislature and codified by Texas Education Code Chapter 61, Subchapter GG.

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.
