HENAAC Scholarship Types

Great Minds in STEM is grateful to have a broad portfolio of industry, government, non-profits and private donors, who are dedicated to supporting the academic pursuits of our nation’s underserved STEM students, who merit competitive academics, strong leadership, and commitment to service.

However, GMiS continues to seek more scholarship donors to meet the growing demand of our college-going population.  With over 1,400 scholarship applications received, GMiS currently provides a little over 100 merit-based scholarships.  In addition, GMiS works to bring each of its current class of HENAAC Scholars to its annual HENAAC Conference, where scholars have the opportunity to meet their sponsors, participate in competition, strengthen their career network, and seek employment opportunities.  GMiS subsidizes over $950 per scholar to cover travel, hotel and registration.

GMiS welcomes the financial contributions of industry, small businesses, ERGs, government agencies and NGOs, to support merit-based STEM scholarships. The minimum contribution for one scholarship is $1150 (inclusive of a 15% administrative fee).  These scholarships may be one-time scholarships, renewable scholarships, scholar-internships, or endowed fellowships.

GMiS also welcomes individuals and families to support the scholarship program. Contributions of a minimum of $575 for one merit-based STEM scholarship, may be made in memory or recognition of a loved one. (The donation is inclusive of a 15% administrative fee).

For further information on how to make a tax-deductible scholarship donation, create a memorial scholarship or endowment or become a scholarship sponsor, please email Dr. Gary Cruz, Director of Academic Affairs and University Relations, at gcruz@greatmindsinstem.org
