The CNY STEM Scholarship Program, administered by PEB and the CNY STEM Hub, launched in 2013 to support high school seniors who plan to pursue a college degree in a field related to STEM. Since its inception, local employers have now awarded 65 scholarships, valued at $706,000 through this CNY STEM Scholarship Program. Some of those original scholarship recipients are now working at the local companies that sponsored their education.
These student winners represent the best and brightest in STEM in Central New York from the hundreds of applications submitted from high school seniors in seven counties. Included with the scholarships are guarantees for paid summer internships with the sponsoring companies.
