STEM DesignatedDegree Program ListEffective January 1, 2020Last Updated 3/17/2021The STEM Designated Degree Program list is a complete list of fields of study that VA considers to be science,technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) fields of study for purposes of the Edith Nourse Rogers STEMScholarship described at 38 CFR 3320. Under 38 CFR 3320(b)(4)(A)(i), a STEM field of study is a field of study included inthe Department of Education’s Classification of Instructional Programs taxonomy within the two-digit series containingbiological or biomedical science, physical science, science technologies or technicians, computer and information scienceand support services, mathematics or statistics, engineering, engineering technologies, health professions or medicalresidency, agriculture or natural resources science programs, or a related field. In general, related fields will include fieldsinvolving research, innovation, or development of new technologies using engineering, mathematics, health, computerscience, or natural sciences.Accordingly, this list designates the following twelve CIP summary groups/series at the 2-digit CIP code level: Biologicaland Biomedical Sciences (CIP code 26), Physical Sciences (CIP code 40), Science Technologies/Technicians (CIP code41), Computer and Information Sciences and Support Services (CIP code 11), Mathematics and Statistics (CIP code 27),Engineering (CIP code 14), Engineering Technologies/Technicians (CIP code 15), Health Professions and Related ClinicalSciences (CIP code 51), Health Professions Residency/Fellowship Programs (CIP code 60), MedicalResidency/Fellowship Programs (CIP code 61), Agriculture, Agriculture Operations, and Related Sciences (CIP code 01)and Natural Resources and Conservation (CIP code 03). Any new additions to those areas will automatically be includedon this STEM Designated Degree Program list. Consistent with the definition of “related field” above, related fields in thislist include fields involving research, innovation, or development of new technologies using engineering, mathematics,health, computer science, or natural sciences. VA designates these fields at the 6-digit level.CIP 22020 CIP CIP Code TitleDigitCodeCode011 AGRICULTURAL/ANIMAL/PLANT/VETERINARY SCIENCE AND RELATED FIELDS.011011.01Agriculture, General.011.0101Agricultural Business and Management, General.011.0102Agribusiness/Agricultural Business Operations.011.0103Agricultural Economics.011.0104Farm/Farm and Ranch Management.011.0105Agricultural/Farm Supplies Retailing and Wholesaling.011.0106Agricultural Business Technology/Technician.011.0199Agricultural Business and Management, Other.011.02011.0201Agricultural Mechanization, General.011.0204Agricultural Power Machinery Operation.011.0205Agricultural Mechanics and Equipment/Machine Technology/Technician.011.0207Irrigation Management Technology/Technician.011.0299Agricultural Mechanization, Other.Agricultural Business and Management.Agricultural Mechanization.011.03011.0301Agricultural Production Operations.Agricultural Production Operations, General.011.0302Animal/Livestock Husbandry and Production.011.0303Aquaculture.011.0304Crop Production.011.0306Dairy Husbandry and Production.011.0307Horse Husbandry/Equine Science and Management.011.0308Agroecology and Sustainable Agriculture.011.031Apiculture.
