Who should apply?

Students who are fascinated by science, technology, engineering, or math, should apply! We are especially interested in people who might have had other responsibilities or situations that impacted their grades, but can show us they have a longstanding, strong interest and talent in STEM subjects. Are you known for always asking “why” at your job? Do you have scouting or 4-H badges in STEM-related activities, have you participated or volunteered in museum or after school science programs (robotics, tutoring, rocketry, engine repair, gardening for food or pollinators, fossil collecting, are examples), can you navigate by the stars, or do you otherwise strongly connect with the world around you? This might be the program for you!

Please have a look at the Eligibility page for details. When you are ready, fill out a formal application form at the Scholarship page by the April 2024 deadline.

NOTE: After midnight, April 19, 2024, applications to the 2024/25 OHMS Scholars Program will continue to be accepted until all openings in the first and second year cohorts have been filled, but applications received before the deadline will be given priority consideration.
