Calculus is known to be one of the most difficult math subjects and is dreaded by many students.
However, calculus teaches valuable concepts that are highly applicable to many careers in the STEM field. STEM careers are booming, especially jobs like computer support, information security, and civil engineering, which have each added over 35,000 jobs since 2015.
This scholarship seeks to commend students who are taking on the challenge of studying STEM by helping to relieve the burden of tuition.
Any high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is pursuing STEM and is a US citizen or permanent legal resident may apply for this scholarship.
