Edith Nourse Rogers STEM Scholarship

Edith Nourse Rogers STEM Scholarship

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is launching the Edith Nourse Rogers STEM Scholarship for students training in high demand STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields.  The Rogers STEM Scholarship application is now available at: https://www.va.gov/education/apply-for-education-benefits/application/1995/introduction.

Recipients will receive up to nine months of additional Post-9/11 GI Bill® entitlement or a maximum of $30,000. Eligible Post-9/11 GI Bill® students must have either exhausted their entitlement or will exhaust their entitlement within 180 days.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.

Eligibility for the scholarship has two paths:

  • A student enrolled in a STEM program leading to an undergraduate degree who has completed 60 credit hours of their program and requires at least 120 semester (or 180 quarter) credit hours to graduate.
  • A student who has earned a STEM undergraduate degree and has enrolled in a teaching certification program.

We need your help to make sure Veterans and Fry Scholars know about this scholarship opportunity! We will also need you to provide verification of applicants’ credit hours in order to determine eligibility. When a student at your school applies, we will send you a copy of the attached letter and request that you send it back with their information as soon as possible. If we do not receive a student’s credit hour information, we will not be able to process their application and they will not receive the scholarship, so your cooperation is both critical and appreciated.

For additional information, please visit the Rogers STEM Scholarship website at: https://benefits.va.gov/gibill/fgib/stem.asp or contact VA’s Education Call Center by phone at 1-888-442-4551.  We have included a one pager that you can provide to interested Veterans and Fry Scholars at your school, so that they can learn more and apply for the Rogers STEM Scholarship.
