Abstract

The Southern Illinois Energy Scholarships is an S-STEM program at Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC) funded by the National Science Foundation. This project supports talented community college transfer students with demonstrated financial need and an interest in the energy field to complete a STEM degree and enter the energy workforce. This is a 5 years grant supporting 43 scholars while earning baccalaureate degrees at SIUC. Objectives of this program include providing scholarships that average $7,000 for each of two years for each scholar, developing a mentoring and support network, and providing enrichment activities and educational experiences related to energy systems and challenges. This paper reports activities and findings in the third year of the project that include recruitment and accomplishments of 30 scholars. We also present results of on-going analyses of the effectiveness of program components on scholars’ outcomes.
