SB 1066 would amend the continuing eligibility requirements for higher education institutions to participate in the Texas Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (T-STEM) Challenge Scholarship program. Currently, the state requires that the institution show that at least 70 percent of T-STEM Challenge Scholarship recipients either are employed in a STEM field or enrolled in an upper-division program leading to a STEM degree two years after implementation of a scholarship.
This bill would allow an institution three years, instead of two years, to demonstrate results for continuing participation. Institutions would only be required to show that recipients are employed in any field or enrolled in courses leading to a certificate, associate's, or baccalaureate STEM degree.
