There is an increasing demand for advanced technologies and for people who know how to make and use them. But STEM is not just about computers. People who pursue STEM careers are also creative thinkers and problem solvers. Careers in STEM are as diverse as the people who pursue them, and because of the increased demand, offer a greater amount of job security.

If you are a parent or teacher of a student with a visual impairment who is interested in pursuing a STEM degree in higher education, there is scholarship money available to you. APH is proud to offer three scholarship opportunities.
