Each year, the R&D Council awards $1,500 and $750 scholarships sponsored by council member organizations to outstanding community college students studying in a STEM field. It awards these scholarships to New Jersey students based on applicants’ minimum 3.5 grade point average, STEM field of interest, extracurricular activities, financial need, other awards, and post-graduation career goals. As a broad coalition of senior representatives from industry, academia, and government, the members of the R&D Council make these scholarships available through member-donated sponsorships.

In August, scholars will attend the seventh Annual Merit Scholar Luncheon at an R&D Council member’s research and development facility to cultivate further interest in their field of study and strengthen their relationship with the R&D community. Scholars will also be honored at the R&D Council’s 37th Edison Patent Awards Ceremony and Reception on Nov. 3 at the Liberty Science Center.
