STEM Scholars Program

Chemistry Department faculty; Dr. Iraj B. Nejad and Dr. Jenny S. Chen, have received a new five-year $600,000 award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The award will provide 36 Academic Scholarships annually ranging from $2,400 to $2,800 each and 10 summer Research Scholarships annually for $3000 each, to academically talented but financially needy full-time students interested in obtaining an associate degree in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) or transfer to a four-year university to obtain higher education degrees in STEM disciplines. A student may receive both the academic scholarship during the fall/spring semesters at Mt. SAC as well as the research scholarship during the summer to participate in an 8-week undergraduate research program at a neighboring four-year institution including UCLA, UC Irvine, Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Los Angeles or the JPL.

Students who meet the program eligibility may receive the academic scholarship for a second consecutive year. The students participating in the program will receive an array of academic support including individual advising, tutoring and mentoring by experienced STEM faculty at Mt. SAC to succeed in their education. Additional information for the program can be obtained by clicking here.
