2012-13 Community College STEM Scholarship Program
The Community College STEM Scholarship provides a one-year, non-renewable award of $2,000 for students enrolled full time (12 credit hours or more) at one of Virginia’s Community Colleges. Students must be majoring in a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) field and be interested in pursuing a career that supports NASA’s mission including careers in the aerospace sector.
Students must apply during their freshman year of community college enrollment for an award that will begin in the sophomore year. The number of awards is contingent on available funding. This is a competitive scholarship program based on academic merit funded by NASA and the Commonwealth of Virginia recognizing high academic achievement and promise. Students that continue their education and transfer to a VSGC member university are encouraged to apply to the Undergraduate STEM Research Scholarship program in their junior or senior year.

Curriculum Reqts Phys Sci Tech USGS
The NOVA/USGS Physical Science Technician Program is new and in the formative stages. The USGS is looking for well trained candidates to serve in Internship positions during the summer months. These are paid internships with the possibility of placement this coming summer. We have established curriculum requirements (link above) for the intern candidates. This program will ultimately lead to a new Associates of Applied Science degree at NOVA (in work). Ultimately the USGS is looking for candidates to fill these internships as well as qualified individuals that may be interested in employment at the USGS. We are planning a “career fair” with the USGS in January (date, location forthcoming) where you will learn much more about the new program and opportunities at the USGS.
GEO TECH CENTER:
Remote Sensing is among the fastest growing sectors of the geospatial industry and worthy of consideration by individuals in search of a new career or schools seeking to expand their geospatial curriculum. John Johnson of the GeoTech Center will share his results from a national survey and job analysis on this occupation. He will provide answers and insight into these and other related questions. Join us at 12pm Central for a one hour interactive presentation.
