Eligibility Key

To fit as much info as we can, we're using shorthand to describe the most common eligibility requirements for these opportunities. Different categories will be separated by a slash. For example, a scholarship that is open to Hispanic/Latinx high school seniors who will pursue a STEM degree in college would have UR / HS12 / STEM at the top. 
 

  • 18+ = students who are 18 years or older; if a different minimum age is specified, number before + will reflect that

  • CCCU = students attending an accredited 2- or 4-year community college, college or university
  • CU = students attending an accredited 4-year college or university
  • F = students who are women or another gender underrepresented in STEM 
  • G = graduate school students 
  • HS9-12 = high school students, any grade (9-12)
  • HS12 = high school seniors; HS11 for juniors
  • MC = MATHCOUNTS alumni
  • O = some other eligibility requirement specific to the scholarship
  • STEM = students majoring in a science, technology, engineering or math field; if specific STEM field required, associated letter will be underlined in "STEM"
  • UR = students who are from a racial/ethnic group underrepresented in STEM.
