STEM Scholarship for Kids/Teen
This STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) scholarship was established in 2017 by SIM (Society for Information Management) Albany. As part of its efforts to give back to the local community, SIM looks for opportunities to collaborate and work with academic institutions and non-profit organizations that promote STEM through their programs. The STEM scholarship will be awarded to students interested in attending classes through the SUNY Schenectady Workforce Development and Community Education’s Kid and Teen Academy. The intention of the scholarship is to make it possible for economically disadvantaged students to take STEM classes by funding some or all of the cost of a class. The number of awards and award amount may vary based on the number of applicants and the type of class.

If you are interested in applying for the STEM scholarship for your child, please fill out the application to apply. Please contact Maria C. Kotary at 518-595-1101, ext. 4 or kotarymc@sunysccc.edu with any questions or concerns. This scholarship is only for students wishing to take STEM courses.
