S-STEM MILES Scholarship Program

The S-STEM MILES Scholarship Program Overview

The S-STEM program at SRJC supports academically talented students with financial needs to complete their transfer pathway toward a major in Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Engineering, Mathematics, or Physics.   Students taking classes in these Departments but not intending to major in one of these five fields are not eligible. 

STEM MILES scholars must demonstrate their intention to major in one of the five Departments by being registered for gateway courses into one of these majors at the time of starting the Program.  The scholars will receive $1,100 per semester (or their unmet financial need) and may stay in the Program for a maximum of three consecutive years.  The scholars must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, register for the STEM careers course, participate in the orientation and the faculty advising meetings, subscribe to receive Program SMS (phone texts), and complete one activity from the menu of professional activities every semester.
