Robert G. Templin Jr. STEM Scholarship

In honor of Dr. Templin's 12 years as NOVA’s visionary leader, the NVCC Educational Foundation created an endowment that will fund an annual scholarship for deserving students studying in the STEM disciplines.

During his tenure at NOVA, Dr. Templin’s focus was on improving the quality of life for the 2.1 million citizens of Northern Virginia. He saw an opportunity to build public-private partnerships to increase Northern Virginia’s supply of students entering careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to build a pipeline of tech savvy workers to fuel the region’s economy.

The Robert G. Templin Jr. STEM Endowment will fund scholarships that will:

  • Cover the cost of one year’s tuition and books.
  • Award the scholarship to students entering their last year at NOVA.
  • Allow students to complete their associate’s degree in a STEM field, earning 12 credits per semester.
  • Prepare students for transfer to earn a baccalaureate from a four-year institution.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 to fund the STEM Endowment established in Dr. Templin’s honor. Your support is greatly appreciated.
