NEW STEM – A Great Opportunity for Veterans

Alabama A&M University welcomes veterans that enroll as students. Through the Non-commissioned Officer Enhanced Workforce in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Program – NEW STEM – veterans that are majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) have an opportunity to secure career opportunities with employers that value these majors and the skills and experiences gained from working in the military.


Honorably discharged veterans who have been pre-approved for admission, or are currently enrolled at Alabama A&M University, and are pursuing a degree in a STEM field can participate in NEW STEM. Participation includes an opportunity to secure a paid co-op position with a corporation or a federal agency that has an office in Huntsville, AL.

Co-ops have short-term and long-term benefits.  Students gain invaluable experience while working part-time and being enrolled full-time at Alabama A&M University. Co-op employers often give priority consideration for permanent employment opportunities to students who have successfully completed co-ops.

Veterans interested in applying for the NEW STEM program must have training, experience, or academic coursework in one of the following STEM areas: engineering (civil, chemical, computer, electrical, or mechanical), mathematics or science.  Students interested in applying must:
