(science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) subjects at a
U.S. middle or high school.
To be eligible,
be U.S. citizens with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 (or
equivalent). Undergraduate candidates must be attending
an accredited U.S. college or university on-campus and majoring
in secondary education or a STEM field for the purpose of
teaching STEM subjects in a U.S. middle or secondary school.
Undergraduate applications will be accepted from current
sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Graduate-level
candidates must be
currently enrolled in at least two
semester-equivalent classes at an accredited U.S. college or

completed a bachelor’s degree in a STEM major.
In addition to the
$5,000 scholarship, each graduating AFCEA STEM Scholar can
receive a $1,000 AFCEA STEM Teaching Tools grant each year for
three years if the recipient continues teaching a STEM subject.
These grants can be used to fund hardware and
software, other classroom tools, field trips, and STEM-focused
extra-curricular activities and clubs.
