I am a nursing student (ultimately I hope to be a critical care nurse working in an ICU) seeking a STEM (science, technology, education, math) scholarship. A one page essay is required along with securing a teacher/mentor that I will meet with several times throughout the year, along with meeting with other STEM scholars. I have already obtained the mentor, but must have 3 questions answered in order to obtain funds for school. The questions are as follows:
1. What do you hope to gain from participating in the program?
2. Why have you chosen your particular major?
3. How might this experience help you in your field of study or future career?
