Georgia Perimeter College ENLISTEM Scholars Program

Thank you for your interest in ENLISTEM, but our 5-year, NSF-funded S-STEM program is now complete. Over $530,000 in scholarships were awarded to 102 students, 64% of whom have already graduated and/or transferred to 4-year institutions! Congratulations all!


ENLISTEM is a program that provides scholarships to educate students and nurture leadership in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

The goal of the ENLISTEM Scholarship Program is to provide improved educational opportunities for students by improving student support programs for STEM participants and by removing financial barriers that higher education often presents.  The program awards approximately 32 scholarships each year to academically talented students who demonstrate financial need, and who are enrolled in a course of study leading to an associate degree in a STEM discipline.

This is a competitive scholarship program. All students who meet the requirements will be evaluated by a faculty committee; the top students, as determined by the faculty committee, will receive ENLISTEM scholarships.
