The Future of STEM Scholars Initiative (FOSSI) is a program providing scholarships and professional development opportunities directed at furthering science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in students from underrepresented communities. If selected, the student will receive a $40,000 scholarship award. This award will be disbursed in the amount of $10,000 per year, for four (4) years, and will go directly to the institution in which the student is enrolled. Selected students will also receive internship preparation and placement, leadership training, mentoring and access to the AIChE student networking opportunities.
This program is administered by HBCU Week Foundation, Inc. The mission of HBCU Week is to encourage high-school aged Youth to enroll in HBCUs, provide scholarship dollars for matriculation and sustain a pipeline for employment from undergraduate school to corporate America.
The HBCU Week Foundation will form a committee and award the scholarship based on a comprehensive evaluation process.
Areas reviewed by the committee include but are not limited to the following:
The multi-year scholarship will be reviewed annually and is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study at an HBCU.
