STEM Scholar Program Started Thanks to NSF Grant
USM received a grant from the NSF STEM Scholarship Program to support deserving Maine students who want to study computer science, engineering, environmental science, and technology management . Nineteen students are enrolled at USM this fall with scholarships of up to $5,000 per year per student. When fully implemented, the grant will improve educational opportunities for up to 41 incoming USM freshmen and community college transfer students. The students must be Maine residents plus meet academic and financial criteria. The PI is Associate VP for Research and Professor of Environmental Science Samantha Langley-Turnbaugh. Co-PIs are Associate Professor of Technology Carl Blue, Associate Professor of Computer Science Bob Boothe, and Assistant Professor of Engineering Mehrdaad Ghorashi.
