The GREAT news is that GMiS has already received scholarship applications climbing back up to our traditional numbers served! With greater demand, GMiS is working on awarding as many scholarships as possible! Together, we can make a difference, once stellar student at a time.
The win-win at Great Minds in STEM, is that we meet merit and need. All GMiS STEM Scholars have a minimum 3.0 GPA; are enrolled in an accredited STEM/health degree-seeking program; and are either of Hispanic descent or demonstrate significant service and leadership within the Hispanic community.
Offering a scholarship can assist with attracting and retaining technical talent, foster philanthropy, create brand awareness, further diversity, equity and inclusion, corporate social responsibility, and everything in between, providing a huge return on investment for entities while also making a real difference in students’ lives.
Corporations, government agencies, affinity groups and individuals are invited to support the academic pursuit of GMiS STEM Scholars at our 35th Anniversary Conference “Recharging America with Our Youth,” taking place October 11-14, 2023, in Pasadena. CA.
