The following links offer undergraduate and graduate students a primary source for searching Federally-sponsored opportunities and programs for students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) areas. These opportunities range from scholarships, research internships, and graduate fellowships that undergraduate and graduate students can apply to directly to funding opportunities for academic institutions to establish innovative undergraduate and graduate training programs.
Users of these sites may search for program opportunities using a set of standardized categories - such as STEM discipline, institutional location where the undergraduate or graduate opportunity takes place, and Federal agency sponsor - as well as through using a keyword search. Search results will provide a brief program description and a direct link to the sponsoring agency's program website. Interested applicants should follow the sponsoring agency's procedures for applying.
These sites were developed through collaboration between the participating agencies of the White House National Science and Technology Council's Committee on STEM Education (CoSTEM) and Science.gov Alliance and is updated on a regular basis.
The launch of the Federal STEM Opportunities Sites was publicized in an April 2016 Science.gov New Release.
