STEM Promise Scholarship
TCC WOMEN’S CENTER STEM PROMISE PROGRAM
Demand for workers with skills in higher paying science, technology, engineering and mathematics, known as the STEM fields, is expected to continue to outpace demand for non-STEM workers over the next decade, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The TCC Women’s Center STEM Promise Program pays the full cost of tuition and fees for up to 2 years.
TCC and the TCC Women’s Center are addressing a persistent challenge—how to create a larger and more diverse STEM workforce pipeline—through The TCC Women’s Center STEM Promise Program scholarship.
Twenty students a year will be awarded 2-year scholarships to pursue STEM degrees at TCC – degrees that will take them directly into their careers or to a 4-year college to complete a bachelor’s degree.
Starting at TCC was definitely the right step for me. I’ll be transferring to Old Dominion in a year, and I’ll be debt free. That’s a big deal.Erin Fitzpatrick, Mechanical Engineering Technology, STEM Promise Scholar
