What is the RST Scholarship Program? 

  • One of the primary goals of RST is to support promising STEM students with financial need as they pursue a STEM degree. RST offers generous scholarships of up to $2500 per quarter along with a dedicated mentor and other supports. Scholarship recipients must be U.S. citizen's or permanent residents pursuing a 4-year STEM degree. Unfortunately, healthcare related degrees are not eligible for this program.

How do I apply for RST Scholarship?

We have two types of scholarship available:

  • Students in pre-college math courses are eligible for special awards. These awards start at $1000 for the first quarter and increase to up to $2500 quarter with successful completion of  your quarter. These scholarship are awarded every quarter, so apply anytime!
  • If you're farther along, we have funds for you, too! We make awards in both Fall and Spring quarters. Application review begins the fifth week of each quarter so get yours in early!

You can find both our applications here:
