Waubonsee Recognizes STEM Scholarship Program

Waubonsee Community College recently completed a seven-year program that resulted in 84 student scholarships totaling more than $598,000. The Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Scholarship Program was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation and designed to recognize scholarship in all disciplines of natural science, engineering, computer science, and mathematics. This month, Waubonsee is pleased to recognize the STEM Scholarship Program as its Institutional Success Story.

“The experience [participating in the NSF scholarship program] had a profound impact on my academics and career as a hazard geographer,” said Hannah Eboh, a winner in the 2012 Skyway STEM poster competition and current graduate student at DePaul University conducting research in hazard geomorphology.

The average GPA of Waubonsee students who participated in the program was 3.57, and the transfer rate to four-year programs was approximately 90%.

The Skyway STEM poster competition is a program that gives students the opportunity to express STEM topics in creative ways.
