The AFCEA Educational Foundation is offering scholarships of $5,000 each to students actively pursuing an undergraduate degree, graduate degree or credential/licensure for the purpose of teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering or math) subjects at a U.S. middle or secondary school.  The scholarships are made possible by generous contributions from Booz Allen Hamilton, Terremark Worldwide, AFCEA International and several of AFCEA’s regional chapters. 

To be eligible, students must be U.S. citizens with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 (or equivalent). Undergraduate candidates must be attending an accredited U.S. college or university on-campus and majoring in secondary education or a STEM field for the purpose of teaching STEM subjects in a U.S. middle or secondary school. Undergraduate applications will be accepted from current sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  Graduate-level candidates must be currently enrolled in at least two semester-equivalent classes at an accredited U.S. college or university.  Credential and licensure students must have completed a bachelor’s degree in a STEM major.

Additional background is available in the AFCEA news release announcing the 2013-2014 scholarship program and FAQs including contact information.  Information on 2012 recipients of scholarships also is available.

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.
