SENEDIA provides scholarships to students enrolled in a science, technology, engineering, or math field with the potential to support the future national security and defense sector workforce. Students entering their second year of a two-year degree program or entering their third year of a four-year program are eligible to apply. Students transitioning from a two-year program to a four-year program are also eligible to apply. Applicants must be attending schools in the US, and they must be a U.S. citizen and a resident of New England.
Apart from completing the application, applicants must also submit a transcript, a resume (indicating employment in the STEM field (where applicable), civic/volunteer work, and any honors/awards earned), and an essay (describing their interest in and passion for a STEM-related career within the defense sector). The application must be submitted by the student, and the student must be willing and available to connect directly with the Scholarship Committee, if necessary.
