G-STEMS is a National Science Foundation-funded program at SUNY Geneseo that provides scholarships for academically talented STEM majors with financial need.
The program is designed to support scholars through the successful completion of their degrees while maximizing the opportunities available to STEM majors. In addition to scholarships, G-STEMS offers peer and faculty mentoring, cohort-building activities, research experiences, conference attendance and presentation experiences.
Scholarships will be awarded to G-STEMS scholars to assist with the cost of attending Geneseo. The program will support two cohorts of 15 scholars each, for a total of 30 G-STEMS scholars. The amount of each scholarship will depend on the scholar's unmet financial need, with scholarships averaging $5,000 and ranging up to $10,000 per year.
G-STEMS scholarships are available to first-year students and transfer students. Scholarships will be awarded beginning with the Fall 2021 semester.
As long as scholars continue to meet the program requirements, the scholarships will be renewed in subsequent years or until students reach a maximum amount of $40,000. The scholarship amount could change annually with changes to student FAFSA reports.
