The STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Scholars program at ACC was made possible through a grant from the National Science Foundation in 2011.

The program, is available to students with financial need (according to FAFSA) who are interested in studying in the STEM disciplines of biology, chemistry, physics and math.
