HENAAC Scholars Program

At Great Minds in STEM, we believe that the key to cultivating tomorrows’ technology leaders is to recognize and support the leadership of today’s outstanding science, technology, engineering and math students.  With that in mind, we are asking that you promote a great opportunity offered by Great Minds in STEM – the HENAAC Scholars Program.

Since our inception, the HENAAC Scholars Program has experienced tremendous growth awarding over $1.7 million dollars in educational grants to over 850 STEM students.  These awards are made possible through the continued generous support of our outstanding scholarship partners including the Northrop Grumman Corporation, Lockheed Martin, NASA, Cummins, NAVSEA, SPAWAR, Verizon, Rockwell Collins, Oracle and Texas Instruments.

To qualify for a scholarship, applicants must be full time college STEM students (or high school seniors attending a college/university in the fall) active in the Hispanic community with an overall grade point average of at least a 3.0.  This year’s scholarships will be presented at the 25th Anniversary HENAAC Conference during our Student Leadership Dinner.  In addition to their scholarship, recipients will receive financial support to travel and attend the HENAAC Conference where they will meet their scholarship sponsor and be able to participate in a number of rewarding activities.  This year’s Conference will take place on October 3-5 in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.  HENAAC Scholarship Program information will be available on our website beginning on Friday, February 1st.  The deadline to apply for the scholarship is April 30th.

Great Minds in STEM will be once again awarding travel grants to students to attend the 25th Anniversary Conference.   We ask that you inform your STEM students about this opportunity to take advantage of all the wonderful networking opportunities such as the Career and Graduate School Fair.   Student registration and travel grant information will be available on our website beginning on Tuesday, February 19th.  The “early bird” student registration rate is $115.  We also award monetary grants through the HENAAC College Bowl and our Technical Papers and Poster Competition.  For additional information on how to participate in these programs, please ask your students to visit our website at:
