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.
