Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)


AFCEA International and the AFCEA Educational Foundation will award 50 scholarships of $5,000 to undergraduate, graduate and credential or licensure students preparing to teach science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects in U.S. middle or secondary schools. 

The increase from 35 scholarships awarded last year is made possible through the support of AFCEA member companies Booz Allen Hamilton, Terremark Worldwide, AFCEA International and several of AFCEA’s regional chapters.

Details on eligibility, last year’s recipients and the on-line application are available here


In addition to the $5,000 scholarship, each graduating AFCEA STEM Scholar can receive a $1,000 AFCEA STEM Teaching Tools grant each year for three years if the recipient continues teaching a STEM subject.  These grants can be used to fund hardware and software, other classroom tools, field trips, STEM-focused clubs and other activities.  See below for more information on that program for scholarship recipients as well as other teachers actively engaged in STEM education.


Upon graduation and having secured a teaching position in a STEM-related field at a U.S. middle or secondary school, STEM Teacher Scholarship recipients are eligible to receive a STEM Teaching Tool grant each year for 3 years on the condition he or she remains teaching a STEM subject. Feedback is required on how the grant funds are utilized.

In addition, $1,000 Grants are provided to AFCEA Chapters for the purpose of selecting K-12 STEM teachers (or international equivalents) to purchase items that would augment STEM activities in classrooms such as lab supplies, hardware, software, SMART boards, projectors or other equipment.  Grants can also be used to fund extra-curricular activities sponsored by STEM teachers such as robotics or math clubs and FIRST competitions.

Some Chapters award multiple grants with additional funds they raise locally.

The grants are supported in part by generous contributions from
Booz Allen Hamilton.
