Anoka-Ramsey Community College is excited to announce its partnership in a $5 million Scholarship in STEM (S-STEM) grant to provide scholarships to students at Anoka-Ramsey Community College, North Hennepin Community College, Ridgewater College, St. Cloud Technical and Community College and St. Cloud State University. The partnership will recruit and support academically high-achieving students who are interested in pursuing a STEM-related degree in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics.
The $5 million grant from the National Science Foundation will provide support for students over the next five years. Of the 1,536 active National Science Foundation S-STEM grants, only 1 percent are funded for more than $4 million, which means the ACCESS STEM consortium is among the top 1 percent of grants by funding. It is also the first multi-institution project funded by an S-STEM grant in Minnesota.
Scholars at Anoka-Ramsey are eligible to receive up to $7,500 per year for two years. Scholars who receive a two-year scholarship and complete their STEM degree program at Anoka-Ramsey will have the opportunity to receive an additional two-year scholarship of up to $9,000 per year once transferred to St. Cloud State University.
