Missouri STEM Signing Day Celebration is April 29, 2020!

The Missouri Chamber Foundation’s Mathematics and Science Coalition launched the Missouri STEM Signing Day program in 2019 to raise awareness of STEM pathways for students beyond high school. Just like signing days for athletes, Missouri STEM Signing Day and Scholarship Award celebrates Missouri high school seniors as they make their commitments to study a STEM field at Missouri colleges and universities. This program recognizes outstanding Missouri high school students from across the state who are inspired by science, technology, engineering and math and are dedicated to pursuing a STEM career pathway in college and beyond. The Missouri Mathematics and Science Coalition has opened up the 2020 application process for high school seniors to apply to be recognized and awarded a $1,000 scholarship during Missouri STEM Signing Day and Scholarship Award Program that will take place on April 29, 2020 at the Missouri Capitol. A minimum of ten (10) students will receive a $1,000 scholarship to go towards their college costs. Students will sign a letter of intent to pursue a STEM degree program at a Missouri post-secondary institution. Students will also be recognized for their STEM achievement by state officials, business leaders, coalition members and other special guests. The scholarship application deadline is March 1, 2020.
