By engaging graduate students, particularly women and other underrepresented groups, Michigan Techís S-STEM Program seeks to build capacity and diversity in the fields of civil and environmental engineering and thereby advance sustainability goals.
Michigan Techís S-STEM Program provides need- and academic performance-based scholarships to qualified U.S. graduate students enrolled in the following degree programs.
- PhD in Environmental Engineering
- PhD in Civil Engineering
- Peace Corps Master's International MS in Environmental Engineering
- Peace Corps Masterís International MS in Civil Engineering
- MS in Environmental Engineering
- MS in Environmental Engineering Science
- MS in Civil Engineering
Approximately four to eight $10,000 scholarships will be awarded annually for PhD students. Five to ten scholarships in the range of $5,000 to $10,000 will be awarded annually for MS students. S-STEM scholarships can be combined with other forms of graduate support.
Funding will be awarded to students whose proposed thesis topic or area of interest is oriented towards sustainable engineering in the developed or developing world. Scholars will be selected according to the following S-STEM Program priority:.
- PhD students in Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering programs
- MS students in the Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering Peace Corps Masterís International programs
- MS students in the traditional Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Environmental Engineering Science programs.
Masters students will typically receive a one-time scholarship. Graduate students seeking a first degree in engineering in either the MS Civil Engineering or MS Environmental Engineering programs may require a second year of make-up coursework and will be eligible for a second scholarship.
Doctoral students may receive up to four annual scholarships.
