The ManTech Foundation is accepting applications for the 2021 STEM scholarships until May 15, 2021. Winners will be announced at the Tekne Awards on November 17, 2021. Any Minnesota student in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) can apply for these scholarships. These grants of $ 2,500 and $ 5,000 include internship opportunities in ManTech member companies. The ManTech Foundation wishes to support diversity in this application and award process. In addition, even health science graduates whose studies will not lead to participation in direct patient care can apply. Most of these scholarships are supported by the ManTech Foundation, while some are sponsored by companies and tech organizations in Minnesota.
STEM scholarships can be useful for funding expensive science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses and programs. Scholarships are financial aid scholarships designed to help students pay for an undergraduate or graduate degree at a college or university. These prestigious awards facilitate access to education because one of the most common reasons students drop out of school and cannot complete their studies is financial hardship. With the scholarships, students can pay part of the tuition or all of the tuition and focus only on studying.
The Minnesota Technology Association fuels the success of Minnesota’s innovation economy. They believe Minnesota’s tech-driven companies are most successful when they have access to exceptional talent, dedicated public policy advocates, and part of an innovative and inclusive tech community. The Minnesota Technology Association has helped nurture each of these attributes within the state, enabling Minnesota’s technology-driven businesses, professionals, and communities to thrive for over thirty years. Thousands of tech professionals make meaningful connections and advance their careers through MnTech’s respected programs, training opportunities, and networking events each year. The Minnesota Technology Association also leads the charge for advancing technology-related public policy issues at the Minnesota State Capitol and is the local affiliate of TECNA, the Technology Councils of North America.
