STEM Promise Program

Make a gift to TCC’s new STEM Promise Program

 

The Tidewater Community College Educational Foundation has launched a dynamic scholarship program that will be a game-changer in the education of our future science, technology, engineering and mathematics workforce in Hampton Roads.

We call it the TCC STEM Promise Program.stem 7

Our Goal

The goal of the program is to increase the number of STEM degrees awarded to women and to minority students, who are underrepresented in our academic programs – and in the workforce. Students will be prepared to start their careers or to transfer to institutions like Virginia Tech and Old Dominion University.

The Foundation awards up to 20 scholarships a year to high-achieving students intending to pursue particular STEM programs at TCC. Scholarships will cover tuition and fees for 2 academic years.

We are grateful to Elizabeth River Crossings LLC, which is investing $120,000 to support the first 10 students over the 2 years of their programs. To sustain this program for the next 10 years, we need the generous support of individuals and organizations interested in STEM education.

The program has awarded more than 50 scholars since the program’s inception in 2017. Many of the scholars have graduated and transferred (debt-free) to 4-year universities including Old Dominion University and Virginia Tech to pursue STEM bachelor degrees.

Our Vision

We will greatly expand the STEM pipeline in Hampton Roads by growing this fund and program.

But if we are to do that, we need your help.  Learn how you can invest in the future STEM workforce by supporting the TCC STEM Promise Program.
