Message from NMSI for 2017-18 AP STEM students:

If last school year (2017-18), you attended a participating NMSI Partner SUHSD high school (Bonita Vista, Chula Vista, Eastlake, Hilltop, Mar Vista, Montgomery, Olympian, Otay Ranch, Southwest, or Sweetwater High), AND you took an AP STEM exam, AND you received a qualifying exam score of 3 or better, you are eligible to receive $100 per qualifying exam score!

We are excited to announce that NMSI student financial awards have been disbursed.  At this point, if you met the criteria above your award should have been disbursed in ONE of the following ways:

  1. Via Gift Card: If you completed the student award survey at end of last school year, you should have received an email containing instructions on how to redeem your Amazon gift card award.  Some emails have gone to spam folders so please check there if you have not received it.
  2. Via Check: If you DID NOT complete the survey (or have no clue what this is talking about), you can check with the NMSI Administration or Site Coordinator at your high school to determine if they have received your check.

If your high school has NOT received your check and you’ve checked your email’s SPAM folder for an Amazon gift card and it has not been received, feel free to reach our NMSI Program Manager, Tenesha Villanueva at tvillanueva@nms.org.

Congratulations, again on your success! We wish you all the best in the year ahead.
