St. Ambrose is awarding S-STEM scholarships worth up to $10,000 per year per student toward tuition for incoming first-year, transfer and current SAU students beginning Fall 2012.

These need-based scholarships will be awarded to academically promising students pursuing a degree in industrial engineering or mechanical engineering. Preference will be given to applicants who are members of an underrepresented race, gender or group that is in some way underserved. Additional preference will be given to students transferring from community colleges with dual-admission to SAU.

The scholarships are a result of a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant and are renewable each year as long as the recipient continues to meet the qualifying criteria. The S-STEM scholarship program will continue until the spring semester of 2017, and then will be subject to renewal by the National Science Foundation.
