This conference paper informs about a S-STEM (Scholarships in STEM) project awarded to the University of New Mexico (UNM) School of Engineering (SOE). This NSF project is focused on providing scholarships to students with merit who also demonstrate financial need. This particular NSF project was focused on professional development activities as well as community service projects. The community service projects were enabled by the S-STEM Scholars taking credit hours or performing paid internships. Although the NSF project is in its first two years, it has had many successful community service projects. This paper focuses on surveys and other data from the scholars' participation in this NSF project. The survey data and testimonials show that the NSF project is progressing in the right direction to achieving its original stated goals.
