Royal Scholars Program-NSF S-STEM Scholarship

This new program for Scranton students in STEM majors (science, technology, engineering and math) is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation. We will be able to accept five rising juniors and offer a two-year scholarship for participation. Contingent on your maintaining the requirements of the program, the scholarship would be $5000 for each of your junior and senior years for a total of $10,000.

Participation in the Royal Scholars Program will include:

· STEM seminars that will pair students for mentoring and provide support for research, internships, and careers in STEM

· Mentoring by faculty and peers throughout the program

· Support for summer research or internship experiences

· Support services by University offices

· Extracurricular activities to build community within the cohort

· Outreach opportunities to build STEM identity and community engagement

The goals of the program are to assist students in developing their identities as STEM professionals, exploring careers in STEM, and taking steps along the appropriate pathways to these careers to improve the STEM workforce. Through this, we hope to influence students’ confidence and success in achieving their goals in STEM careers. Please contact Dr. Janice Voltzow ( with any questions about the program or the application.
