Access to Innovative Education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (AIE-STEM) Scholarship Program

Priority Applications Due May 22
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until all awards are granted. Students are encouraged to apply early due to the competitive nature of the award.

Landmark College’s Access to Innovative Education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Scholarship Program (AIE-STEM) aims to increase access to education and career pathways for academically talented students with financial need who are pursuing life sciences or computer science. Scholars work closely with dedicated faculty members who provide active mentoring and academic assistance for the scholars to maximize their chances for academic and career success. The scholarships are funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics program (NSF S-STEM). Participants in good standing will be awarded the AIE-STEM scholarship each semester (up to $5,000 per semester) until graduation. Through intensive faculty mentoring, scholarship recipients will be encouraged to pursue further study or careers in STEM upon graduation. We encourage high school students and current Landmark students, including transfer students, to apply. To be eligible for this scholarship, you must:

  • Be a United States citizen, national, or permanent resident at the time of application.
  • Demonstrate financial need as defined by the U.S. Department of Education rules for need-based federal financial aid.
  • Be pursuing a Life Science or Computer Science degree at Landmark College
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (current Landmark College students).
  • Be enrolled full-time (a minimum of 12 credit hours) at Landmark College and taking courses in one of the above degrees during the semester receiving the scholarship.
