Scholarships abound for STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

Tracie, many private scholarships like this are available junior year, but most are for senior year in high school, starting the summer before senior year. Scholarships from colleges are something you apply to when you apply to the college. For tips, see this DVD: http://www.thehomescholar.com/getting-the-big-scholarships-dvd.php
