Robert G. Templin Jr. STEM Scholarship Fund

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 of 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. Awards will be given to students entering their last year at NOVA and the scholarship will allow them to complete their associate’s degree in a STEM field, earning 12 credits per semester and preparing them 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!

As Dr. Templin reached across the community, we invite the community to contribute to the scholarship.
