Scholars as Leaders
STEM Scholars at TCU positively contribute to the community around them as they employ their time and talents on campus and beyond the borders of the TCU campus.

Leading in the Community
Since the program’s inception in 2018, STEM Scholars have made a big impact with their community service. They have mentored other aspiring STEM students, volunteered with a wide variety of community organizations, founded their own nonprofits, and more. For example, Kayla Thomas, part of the first cohort of STEM Scholars, started a mentoring organization that helps underrepresented minority women interested in STEM prepare for college.
Leading Through Internships
STEM Scholars put their impressive knowledge to work at companies such as Bell Textron Inc., Lockheed Martin Corporation, General Electric, Fort Worth ISD and several DFW-area medical clinics. Whether designing jet engines, tutoring students, healing patients or developing IT software, these students are making a positive impact on the world around them.
