iCode, an after-school and weekend program that offers STEAM education to students in first through twelfth grade, today announced it will offer 200 tuition scholarships up to $1,200 per student. Awarded scholarships will apply toward an eight-month commitment in any of the program levels. Students will also receive a $100 CD upon successful completion of all requirements within their program and registration for the next level.
To be eligible, applicants must be enrolled in an elementary, middle school or high school program, complete an online application and create a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation no longer than 10 slides illustrating the importance of STEAM. Previous scholarship recipients are not eligible to reapply.
Scholarship amounts will be based on grade and level of engagement, and will range from $250 to $1,200. For a basic scholarship, applicants must demonstrate an understanding of STEAM disciplines according to their grade and provide a general presentation that may be supported by a teacher or school professional. Intermediate scholarships are awarded based on general understanding of STEAM disciplines and how they complement each other, as well as a good presentation that is developed independently. Master scholarship recipients must be able to demonstrate solid knowledge and understanding of several STEAM disciplines, and provide concrete examples of previous engagements with STEAM.
Scholarship applications are judged by a panel of iCode instructors and business professionals according to their content, originality, creativity and effort. The deadline for submission is March 31, 2016.
