The Great Minds in STEM™ (GMiS) 2015-16 HENAAC Scholarship

DEADLINE: April 30, 2015

Graduating high school seniors, undergraduate students and graduate students, who intend to or are currently pursuing a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) degree at an accredited college/university in the U.S. or Puerto Rico, are encouraged to apply for these merit-based scholarships. In addition, students must have an overall minimum 3.0 GPA and must be of Hispanic descent or demonstrate leadership/service within the Hispanic community.

Scholarship awards range from $500 – $10,000.


Scholarship recipients will be invited to attend the 27th HENAAC STEM Career Conference, from October 14 – 18, 2015, in Pasadena, CA. Great Minds in STEM subsidizes over $850 in additional registration, travel and housing for each Scholar to attend this conference, where they will meet their sponsors, be awarded their scholarship, and formally inducted as new members of the GMiS Scholars Society.

Here is a small sample of some of the numerous scholarships offered by GMiS:

Corporate / Government Sponsored Scholarships – These scholarships are made possible thanks to our dedicated scholarship sponsors from corporate America, federal agencies and affinity groups.

Graduate Computer Science Scholarships – These highly-competitive $10,000 scholarships are awarded to qualified masters students pursuing a computer science, IT or related software development degree.

U.S. Navy STEM Scholarship – These highly-competitive $10,000 scholarships, in partnership with NAVSEA and SSP, are awarded to qualified graduating high school seniors, who have a minimum 3.0 GPA, and will be pursuing a STEM degree at a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI). During their first semester in college, these scholars have the opportunity to apply for the Student Employment Program, which provides them a summer internship and continued funding through their undergraduate career, so long as the student maintains a competitive GPA in a STEM degree.

In Memoriam and Personal Scholarships – Great Minds in STEM awards some very special scholarships, which have been established in the loving memory of an endeared supporter of GMiS or have been established by long-time supporters and dear friends of GMiS.
