The goal of the GMiS Scholars Program is to increase the persistence to graduation among underrepresented and underserved STEM college students. The financial support helps these students focus on their coursework so they can graduate on time, enter a STEM profession, continue to serve as a role model for future generations, and secure the country's place as the finest technological leader in the world.
The GMiS Scholars Program awarded its first scholarship in 2000, thanks to the support of the Ford Motor Company. Since its inception, the Program has shown tremendous growth and has distributed over $4,200,000 in educational grants to over 1,400 outstanding and deserving scholars. Today, the Program offers three types of scholarships: Corporate/Government Sponsored Scholarships, Special Recognition Scholarships, and In Memoriam and Personal Tribute Scholarships.
