The prestigious NSF Science, Math & Engineering Scholarship will be awarded to potential or current STEM students who intend to transfer into a four-year university as a STEM major. Recipients may be eligible to renew the scholarship for the second year of study at Foothill College so long as recipients continue to meet the minimum qualifications of the scholarship. Quarterly scholarship disbursements are contingent upon recipients enrolling in a minimum of two STEM courses per quarter and earning a 3.00 grade point average (a grade B average) or higher.
To meet the minimum qualifications for the NSF Science, Math & Engineering Scholarship, you must:
To complete the scholarship application, you must submit a letter of recommendation written by a STEM instructor or a counselor from your most recent school; or for entering freshmen, from the graduating high school. You may submit either a hard copy of the recommendation letter; or obtain a hard copy of the recommendation letter then scan the letter, save it as a PDF document and attach it to the online scholarship application; or if the instructor/counselor prefers, he/she may email the letter to SLI_Scholarship@fhda.edu. You must also attach a copy of your high school grade transcript, regardless if you attended high school in the U.S. or in another country. Scholarship finalists may be interviewed by the scholarship committee.
All scholarship materials must be submitted online by the posted deadline; no exceptions. Late materials will not be considered or accepted. Applying for scholarships is a competitive process. Not every student who applies for scholarships will be awarded a scholarship.
