The S-STEM scholarship program at the University of Michigan-Dearborn has the objective of offering the STEM scholarship to academically talented, financially needy undergraduate students pursuing manufacturing engineering as their career path. The key goal of this program is to provide academic experience and professional activities that are needed for developing leadership quality in the manufacturing field. It was granted in 2015, and now it is in its third year of existence. It started with only two students in the first year, but currently has 19 students who are receiving this scholarship.
This paper describes the first three years’ experience of developing and managing the program. It includes the recruitment process, cohort building activities, academic support, mentoring effort and evaluation process that have been developed for this program. Problems encountered in managing the program due to student attitude, participation and performance are described. The efforts to overcome these problems include short seminars on student success and goal setting, development of an on-line communication portal and self-assessment worksheet. The learning experiences gained from these efforts are also described in the paper.
