For 2018, CuraDebt is creating a new scholarship for students interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) majors.
CuraDebt will award 1 scholarships of $500 to an outstanding college student pursuing studies in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.
The NEA says “If the United States is to hold a competitive edge in a rapidly changing global workforce, bolstering the nation’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce is essential.”
CuraDebt supports this effort and wants to encourage students to pursue careers in these fields to bolster our future economic prosperity.
