Students who meet the criteria below will be invited to apply for the REAL-STEM Scholarship Program:
Applicants will be asked to write an essay and provide contact information for a high school instructor in science or mathematics. A committee will review the applications and select a group for interviews.

To retain their scholarships, REAL-STEM Scholars must maintain an overall and major cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher each semester, and maintain a courseload that leads to completion of the SHC requirements in 3 years for Pre-Engineering and 4 years for other STEM fields (typically 15 credit hours per semester).
