NSF S-STEM Scholarship Program


  • Penn State Harrisburg, in conjunction with the National Science Foundation (NSF) has created a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) scholarship program to increase recruitment and retention of students interested in STEM fields.
  • Scholarships are competitive and approximately 10 awards will be made each year.
  • Preference will be given to diverse, academically talented students with demonstrated financial need.
  • The program includes a yearly scholarship in the amount of $8,000 and may be combined with other scholarships for which the student is eligible.
  • The scholarship is contingent upon continued enrollment as a full-time undergraduate student enrolled in any of the STEM programs at Penn State Harrisburg.
  • The program requires involvement in various support service programs as well as participation in internships and undergraduate research opportunities with STEM faculty.
  • Scholarships are renewable as long as academic excellence and program participation requirements are met.
