STEM Promise Scholarship

TCC Women’s Center STEM Promise Scholarship 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 STEM Promise Scholarship pays the full cost of tuition and fees for up to 2 years.

TCC and the TCC Student Resource and Empowerment Center are addressing a persistent challenge—how to create a larger and more diverse STEM workforce pipeline—through The STEM Promise Program scholarship.

Twenty students a year will be awarded 2-year scholarships to pursue STEM degrees at TCC.

These degrees 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.
