    The scholarships focus on students practicing specific STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) disciplines.  

    Why is STEAM So Important to California?

    For decades, innovators and entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley to San Diego have fueled California’s dynamic growth and established our state as a global hub for innovation. To maintain California’s position as a leading innovation-driven economy in the 21st century, our students must be equipped with the skills and experiences that will prepare them to be leaders in our state’s robust economy and complex society.

    What is STEAM?

    In this climate of economic uncertainty, America is once again turning to innovation as the way to ensure a prosperous future. Yet innovation remains tightly coupled with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – the STEM subjects. Art + Design are poised to transform our economy in the 21st century just as science and technology did in the last century.

    STEM + Art/Design = STEAM


    STEAM is a movement championed by Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and widely adopted by institutions, corporations and individuals.

    The objectives of the STEAM movement are to:

    • transform research policy to place Art + Design at the center of STEM

    • encourage integration of Art + Design in K–20 education

    • influence employers to hire artists and designers to drive innovation

    An exhaustive list of STEM disciplines does not exist because the definition varies by organization. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Lists disciplines including[25] physics, actuarial science, chemistry, biology, mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, computer science,computational science, psychology, biochemistry, robotics, computer engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, mechanical engineering,industrial engineering, information science, civil engineering, aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, astrophysics, astronomy, optics,nanotechnology, nuclear physics, mathematical biology, operations research, neurobiology, biomechanics, bioinformatics, acoustical engineering, geographic information systems, atmospheric sciences, educational/instructional technology, software engineering, and educational research.
