AISES has partnered with the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) to manage, develop, and further new and existing educational partnerships between the Department of Defense and other organizations in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The Navy STEM Scholarship Program (Scholarship Program) is designed to reach out to the next generation of scientists and engineers. This program strives to address decreasing numbers of science and engineering graduates by providing financial assistance to students pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) degrees. As tuition, cost of living and other related college expenses continue to rise, the program helps students focus on academics instead of mounting financial debt.
The Scholarship Program, which is funded by NAVSEA and SSP consists of two parts:
- a one-time $10,000 scholarship awarded the freshman year of college; and
- an opportunity to apply for summer employment, which provides valuable technical work experience and continued tuition assistance (up to $15,000 per annum).
