Motivating Undergraduates in Science and Technology - Students Higher Education
Available: Nationally

Thanks for your inquiry. MUST reached its full complement of scholarship recipients for the year, and cannot accept applications for 2012. Please check back next fall to see if application opportunities reopen for the following year.

Program Description:

The Motivating Undergraduates in Science and Technology Project, or MUST, funded by NASA, is a joint partnership with the Hispanic College Fund.

MUST awards scholarships and internships to undergraduates pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, fields. The MUST Project is open to all students and is particularly focused on engaging students from underserved and underrepresented groups to enter STEM fields.

Each year, the MUST Project will support approximately 100 undergraduate students with a one-year competitive scholarship of up to one-half of tuition, not to exceed $10,000. Students who maintain the required minimum grade point average will be eligible for a paid internship at a NASA center. Additionally, students will benefit year-round from tutoring, lecture series and mentoring from STEM faculty and peers.

For more information and to apply please visit the NASA MUST Agency site.
