The STEM Scholarship Program with Promotion and Retention of STEM Education through Networking Team (PARENT) Support awards scholarships up to $2,500 per semester to academically motivated students who demonstrate financial need as described by FAFSA. Students must be full time, and enrolled in one of the following NSM careers: Biology/Biochemistry, Chemistry, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Math or Physics.

The program employs traditional and non-traditional curricular and co-curricular activities to foster an academic and family learning community through activities such as a PARENT Academy to advance the student’s education through parent/family engagement; monthly STEM Student Interest Group (S-SIG) meetings which provide co-curricular activities for networking, professional development, academic and career guidance, and social interaction; and a Mentoring Network, which includes a Research Placement Program and mentoring by faculty, Academic Advising staff, and peers.

Scholarship recipients are required to actively participate in these activities.
