The Motivating Undergraduates in Science and Technology Program (MUST) Program will support approximately 100 undergraduate students with a one-year competitive scholarship of up to one-half of tuition, not to exceed $10,000. MUST awards scholarships and internships to undergraduates pursuing degrees in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. The MUST Program is open to all students and is particularly focused on engaging students from underserved and underrepresented groups in STEM fields (Women, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans and persons with disabilities). Program participants will also receive a $5,000 stipend to participate in a summer research experience at a NASA center.
Students will benefit year-round from tutoring, lecture series and mentoring from STEM faculty and peers. The scholarships and internships will be renewable for up to three years, provided the students continue to meet the academic requirements. The Motivating Undergraduates in Science and Technology Program, funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, is a joint partnership between NASA, the Hispanic College Fund, the United Negro College Fund Special Programs Corporation and the Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers.
