For STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Math) Majors Only – Scholarship Info!!!!

Here is a compiled list of scholarships for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Majors. Some are engineering specific, so I tried my best to separate those; however, some may have “fallen through the cracks.” Good luck applying!!!

Oh, and please remember to ALWAYS check with you financial aid advisor at your desired school. He/she will have far more specific info for community and school scholarships. This list is mainly for non-specific field-related scholarships (except for the ones that obligate you to serve in GA for a specified amount of time). Thanks!

SMART Grant (Hey, I got this one!)

FREE USMLE/COMLEX QUESTIONS!!!

The following is a list I have comprised of FREE, yes FREE USMLE or COMLEX style questions. Some are directly from the test writers themselves, and others may require you to register for the free question banks (i.e. Kaplan). Either way, there is more than enough free samplings here for you to not register for anything and still have loads of good, legitimate study questions. Happy Studying!!!
