T-STEM Challenge Scholarship

There is no deadline for Fall 2018 applications. Applications will be accepted until T-STEM funds are expended.


The Texas Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (T-STEM) Challenge Scholarship Program was established by House Bill 2910, passed by the 82nd Legislature, Regular Session in 2011.

The T-STEM program is funded through a grant from the Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation, provided to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board for the 2012-2013 biennium.

Grants awarded under the T-STEM program allow community and technical colleges to provide merit-based scholarships to qualifying, high-achieving full-time students pursuing careers in STEM and related fields.

Student eligibility is based on grade point average and successful completion of courses that lead to degrees and careers in specified STEM fields.

Due to a decrease in funding offered to Blinn College to support this scholarship, award amounts to eligible students may be less than $1,250 per semester and funds may only be awarded for one semester. Award preference will be given to students who are renewing their scholarship (must fill out an application and indicate ‘renewal’). The deadline for application is rolling until all remaining scholarship funds from the state are exhausted. For students receiving the scholarship for the first time in Fall 2018, there will not be a possibility of renewing.
