The NSTec Engineering and Science Scholarship is run through the Public Education Foundation.

The NSTec Scholarship Committee received 68 eligible applicants. The committee selected 17 for interviews and selected 10 recipients.

Scholarship recipients are given an opportunity to intern at NSTec after their first year of college.
