EPCC STEM Graduates Receive Scholarships

Three students from El Paso Community College (EPCC) were awarded the Scholarship in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) in the field of Computer Science with an emphasis in Cyber-Security. This program has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) since fall of 2011 and has been supporting students’ financial and educational needs.

The students Kristopher Gutierrez, Briana Sanchez and Rocio Cardona, who received the S-STEM, are outstanding EPCC students in Cyber-Security and will transfer to UTEP and continue their studies in the same concentration. The S-STEM is a very ambitious program that pays the students’ tuition until they graduate from a four-year institution.

“This scholarship means the beginning of many opportunities that will help me excel in my major,” said Briana Sanchez, Computer Science major and S-STEM recipient. “This opportunity will allow me to meet new people, be exposed to new material, and strengthen my knowledge in this field.”

“The students who received the S-STEM scholarship are outstanding EPCC students in computer science,” said Dr. Christian Servin, Instructor of Computer Science “Kristopher, Briana and Rocio have shown evidence of success throughout the courses they took at EPCC.”

The S-STEM program will fund students seeking a degree in Computer Science for a period of up to four years.

Funded students at UTEP and CSU-S will receive an annual stipend based on their academic level as follows Freshman: $7,500, Sophomore: $7,500, Junior: $9,000 and Senior: $10,000
