STEM Education Scholarship

Deadline: April 1, 2012


The AFCEA Educational Foundation is offering scholarships of $5,000 to students actively pursuing an undergraduate degree, graduate degree, or credential/licensure for the purpose of teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering or mathematics) subjects at a U.S. middle or secondary school.

For the 2011–2012 school year, 50 scholarships are available thanks to generous support from AFCEA International, several regional AFCEA chapters, Booz Allen Hamilton and Terremark Worldwide, Inc.

In addition to the STEM Teacher Scholarship, each graduating AFCEA STEM Teacher Scholar will receive a $1,000 AFCEA Science Teaching Tools grant per year for 3 years, on the condition the recipient continues teaching a STEM subject. Grants can be used for a variety of purposes including: purchase of STEM-focused classroom supplies, purchase of hardware/software, or to support STEM extra-curricular activities and clubs.

Eligibility: All applicants must be U.S. citizens with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 (or equivalent). Undergraduate candidates must be attending an accredited U.S. college or university on-campus and majoring in secondary education or a STEM field for the purpose of teaching STEM subjects in a U.S. middle or secondary school. Undergraduate applications will be accepted from current sophomores, juniors, and seniors (minimum second- year students, please). Graduate candidates must be currently enrolled in at least two semester-equivalent classes at an accredited U.S. college or university. Credential and licensure students must have completed a bachelor’s degree in a STEM major.

AFCEA International, established in 1946, is a non-profit membership association serving the military, government, industry, and academia as an ethical forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, IT, intelligence, and global security.
