STEM Camp Scholarships

ExxonMobil Pipeline Company is proud to support Rice University’s STEM initiatives through scholarships for two students and three educators to come to the Tapia Say STEM Camp for students and the Project-Based-Learning Professional Development camp for educators.

Additionally, if others have the funds to sponsor additional participants (either students or educators) at $1,300 per person, ExxonMobil will provide a matching scholarship for an equal number of participants up to 10 campers. Students should be rising 8th-12th graders, and we especially encourage you to send 11th graders who are in the top 3 of their class to our Top 3 program. Educators can be anywhere from K-12 and can be STEM or non-STEM.
