Continuing AHC STEM majors may apply for the following scholarship/grant programs:

  • Scholarships in Engineering, Science, Mathematics and Computer Science, SESMC
    (pronounced “Seismic”), now in its fifth and final annual award cycle.
  • Enhancing Success in Transfer Education for Engineering Majors, ESTEEM,
    in its first award cycle.

Both progams are competitive need-based and merit-based scholarship/grant program sponsored by the National Science Foundation's (NSF's) Scholarships in Science, Techonology, Engineering and Mathematics (S-STEM) program.

Sorry, Nursing and Architecture are not included in the scope of either of these grants. If you have a question as to if your major is eligible, please contact Dom Dal Bello at ddalbello@hancockcollege.edu.

Please note that meeting the minimum criteria does not guarantee a scholarship. More details can be found in the application packet, below.

For the 2017–18 academic year, an estimated 20 new scholarships will be awarded between the two programs, at up to $6,000 per year. This is the last year of the SESMC program, so 2016-2017 SESMC awards are for one year only. If an ESTEEM Scholar maintains eligibility, the ESTEEM scholarship is renewed for a second year (pending continued funding).

For questions and details not covered in the application packet, contact Dom Dal Bello at ddalbello@hancockcollege.edu.
