Missouri STEM Signing Day & Scholarship Award

Applications now open!


Just like signing days for athletes, Missouri STEM Signing Day celebrates Missouri high school seniors as they make their commitments to study a STEM field – science, technology, engineering or mathematics – at a 4-year or 2-year college or technical school. The Missouri Chamber Foundation’s Missouri Mathematics and Science Coalition launched Missouri STEM Signing Day in 2019 to raise awareness of STEM pathways for students beyond high school. Powered by The Boeing Company and Missouri’s business community, the program continues to celebrate our future STEM talent in the state.

Missouri STEM Signing Day will take place on Friday, April 26, 2024. The program will recognize outstanding students across the state who are inspired by STEM and dedicated to pursuing a STEM career pathway in postsecondary education and beyond, while also raising awareness of companies in Missouri for future career opportunities.

Whether graduating high school seniors seek to work on the latest technologies in the manufacturing space, conduct cutting edge research to improve the food and drugs we need, or join the medical field to save lives and keep us healthy, Missouri STEM Signing Day is about them.
