    The Scholarships360 Research Team reviews all scholarships individually and strives to exclude any scholarship where any of the below applies:

    • The scholarship requires a fee to apply
    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    Scholarship tips for STEM majors

    1. While some STEM scholarships are for students who have an interest in STEM others require that a student actually majors in a STEM field. This can be a big deal for students who are not 100% sure of their college major. You do not want to be in a situation where you may lose a scholarship because you want to change your major.
    2. If you are writing an essay for your scholarship, make sure that you are tailoring the essay to both the prompt and the organization awarding the scholarship. Try to read over their other materials to get a sense of the values and principles they hold, and emphasize these in your writing. For tips on writing scholarship essays, check out our guides on how to write a winning scholarship essay, how to write an essay about yourself, and how to navigate common scholarship prompts.
    3. Some individual colleges may offer specific scholarships to support prospective student majoring in STEM (such as this scholarship from Kenyon College). Check with the colleges on your list to see if such scholarships exist!
    4. Look for local scholarships! These often have a lower number of applicants, and so you’ll have a higher chance of winning.
    5. Check out our more specific STEM scholarship lists. These include biology majors, engineering majors, math majors, medical school scholarships, computer science, and more.
    6. Investigate professional and student organizations to find additional scholarships. Different subsections of STEM have nationwide and regional coalitions and organizations that offer networking opportunities, scholarships, internships, and more to their members. For example, the American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Education is a great resource for students studying chemistry. Professors at your school may be able to recommend some options for similar organizations, whether they are regional or national.

    Deciding on a STEM field

    STEM is a very wide categorization of fields of study – once you’ve made up your mind to become a STEM major, it’s a good idea to give some serious thought to which of the fields you’d like to study. Try talking to counselors at your school and professionals in each of the fields you’re considering. Better yet, try to find some internships to get some firsthand experience and see what it’s like as a day-to-day job. Our list of guides to college majors can also give you some insight into what is involved in each field.
