STEM Boost

If you are a student majoring in a STEM field—any science, engineering or math program—you may be eligible for some additional scholarship money and student supports to help you get to the finish line! Part-time or full-time current GCC students with a GPA of 2.5 or higher may apply.

STEM Boost resources can include:

  • Free summer STEM courses to count toward your program
  • Scholarships award up to $750/Semester
  • If you receive a fall scholarship and remain in good academic standing (minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better), you are eligible to receive another scholarship in the spring semester if funds are available
  • Enhanced student support to assist with academic and life needs (e.g. career & transfer advising, resume help, internship placement, research opportunities, transportation, financial management, childcare, etc.)
  • Networking with current and former GCC students, scientists at four-year schools and professionals working in their fields

Consider whether the following apply to you:

  1. Are you planning to either transfer in STEM or work in your field after you graduate from GCC?
  2. Could a little boost make it possible for you to finish your degree/transfer sooner? If there are more applicants than scholarships available, priority will be given to students who can finish by Sept. 2022.
  3. Are you willing to create a detailed Academic Plan (semester-by-semester) and commit to it?

Applications will be evaluated and awards added monthly, through the fall term, as funds remain available. Questions? Contact Deidre Murphy at murphyd@gcc.mass.edu.
