SMCM announces new scholarship
St. Mary’s College of Maryland staff announced in a release the creation of the Patuxent River Science & Technology Consortium Scholarship Fund.
The scholarship fund will provide six STEM-focused students from St. Mary’s, Calvert and Charles counties with financial support as well as a conduit for internships, mentoring and professional development that could ultimately benefit the Patuxent River Naval Air Station and the Department of Defense community in Southern Maryland, the release states.
Interested students should be those pursuing a degree in computer science, mathematics, or physics. As part of this scholarship, students will participate in two credit-bearing internships and networking events. These experiences will increase student awareness of the depth and breadth of our local contracting companies and build bridges between the students and companies within the St. Mary’s technology corridor.
