Welcome from the Vice President for Research

CWRU researchers are among the most distinguished in the world. We have 16 Nobel Laureates among current and former faculty and alumni, 4 members of the National Academies of Sciences, 7 members of the National Academy of Engineering, and 8 members of the Institute of Medicine. We also partner with artistic and cultural institutions on a broad range of projects that make important scholarly contributions in the humanities and social sciences.

Extraordinary research requires an outstanding infrastructure. Our Office of Research & Technology Management provides support to seek out grant funding, to facilitate industrial sponsorship, and to transfer university technologies to the marketplace. This is a place for people driven to make a difference, and our office exists to help them succeed.

Contact us. We want you to see what our campus can offer.

Dr. Suzanne Rivera

Limited Submission Reminder: NSF: Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Program (S-STEM)

Key Deadlines: July 31, 2015, 5:00pm (CWRU Internal Submission Deadline), September 22, 2015, 5:00pm EST (agency submission deadline).

This program makes grants to institutions of higher education to support scholarships for academically talented students demonstrating financial need, enabling them to enter the STEM workforce or STEM graduate school following completion of an associate, baccalaureate, or graduate-level degree in science, technology, engineering or mathematics disciplines. Grantee institutions are responsible for selecting scholarship recipients, reporting demographic information about student scholars, and managing the S-STEM project at the institution.

S-STEM scholarship recipients will be selected by the awardee institution, but must be enrolled full time in a program leading to an associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degree in one of the following disciplines for each term for which a student receives a scholarship:

  • biological sciences (except medicine and other clinical fields);
  • physical sciences, including physics, chemistry, astronomy, and materials science;
  • mathematical sciences;
  • computer and information sciences;
  • geosciences;
  • engineering;
  • technology areas associated with the preceding fields (for example, biotechnology, chemical technology, engineering technology, information technology, etc.)


The S-STEM program emphasizes the importance of recruiting students to STEM disciplines, mentoring and supporting students through degree completion, and partnering with employers to facilitate student career placement in the STEM workforce. Participating institutions are expected to support the goals of the S-STEM program including the following: improved educational opportunities for students; increased retention of students to degree achievement; improved student support programs at institutions of higher education; and increased numbers of well-educated and skilled employees in technical areas of national need.

It is expected that scholarship recipients will achieve at least one of the following by the end of the scholarship award period: receive an associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degree in one of the S-STEM disciplines; transfer from an associate degree program to a baccalaureate degree program or from an undergraduate program to a graduate program in one of the S-STEM disciplines; and successfully pass one or more of an institution's self-identified attrition points.

Number of Applicants: One per college within the university
