Students and Technology in Academia Research and Service Alliance

STARS Application

The Students and Technology in Academia, Research and Service (STARS) Alliance comprises colleges and universities across the nation that work together to broaden participation in computing through best practices and community building.

Students who join the STARS program at Seminole State College will work with IT faculty to develop and implement projects that align with their skills and interests. Examples of activities include: event planning and marketing for IT community outreach initiatives, K-12 student mentoring and peer outreach, research, internships and tutoring.

Participants will receive a stipend at the end of each term for successful completion of agreed upon activities.

STARS participants also get the chance to attend the STARS Celebration, an annual leadership conference that showcases the accomplishments of the STARS Leadership Corps. Session topics include technical excellence, leadership skills, research experiences for undergraduates, professional development and civic engagement. Seminole State students and faculty attend this conference as a group. Student expenses are covered by the STARS Alliance.
