If you are a Black or Brown high school senior (or the parent of one) hoping to cobble together enough scholarships to make college affordable, you may be able to get some help from STEMusic’s Book Scholarship.

Eligible students will be interested in attending a Historically Black College or a University in Kansas and majoring in a STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) career field. Four students will be awarded scholarships of $250 each to help pay for books.

STEMusic founder and CEO Roy Hoye III,  who has a degree in Aerospace Engineering, says he believes in the power of supporting under-represented students on their journey in STEM and hopes to help in removing financial roadblocks that can be extremely discouraging.

“I remember what it was like to not have the finances I needed to pursue my STEM degree,” said Moye. “As a Black, Puerto Rican, and Mexican student in STEM, I struggled to identify scholarship opportunities back when I was in college. Thanks to some great advisors, I was able to secure enough scholarships to earn my degree in Aerospace Engineering. This STEMusic Book Scholarship was created for students that look like me and my hope is that it can help them in their pursuit of a STEM degree.”

STEMusic will award 4 students with a $250 Book Scholarship and will provide each student with a certificate and an opportunity to share their story on The STEMusic Podcast Next Generation.

To apply for the $250 STEMusic Book Scholarship, eligible students can complete the application form at www.thestemusic.com/scholarship

The application deadline is June 2. The STEMusic Book Scholarship recipients will be announced on June 30.
