Gov. Eric Holcomb invites students around the state to showcase their knowledge in science, technology, engineering or mathematics and apply to join the 2018 Governor’s STEM team.

The program honors four outstanding high school students for their exceptional performance in one of the STEM subjects. Students can apply or be nominated by a teacher or school staff member. All applications must be submitted by April 22.

Applicants will be evaluated by a panel of STEM professionals, teachers and university representatives. Winners will be announced in May, and selected based on academic performance, work in research, leadership, community service and extracurricular involvement. Winning students will each receive a $1,000 college scholarship from Indiana’s College Choice 529 Direct Savings Plan and letter jackets identifying them as members of the governor’s STEM Team.

STEM courses prepare our future leaders for life beyond high school and provide a good foundation for them to grow and make an impact on our communities. Our state understands the importance of STEM-related subjects and wants to recognize those who set themselves apart in these areas.
