Growth Mindsets in STEM

GM-STEM Scholarship

The TCC “Growth Mindsets in STEM” program fosters the perspective that intelligence and academic success can be improved upon over time with effort, and with the development of particular skills. Each scholarship recipient will receive:

(1) active learning and research experience, (2) optimized individual advising, (3) faculty mentoring, (4) tutoring, (5) internships and career counseling, and (6) non-cognitive skill development. This is a support system for students to complete an undergraduate degree within a field of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
