SCHOLARSHIP ALERT!!! U-STEM SCHOLARS AT THE U OF U
*This is a FANTASTIC new program for students interested in Science/Engineering and the Environment!
The USSTEM (Utah Sustainability, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Scholars program is a new, interdisciplinary opportunity for undergraduate students to become involved in science and engineering fields related to environmental issues. Scholars will have access to research, mentoring, cohort building, special symposia, and a terrific opportunity to be affiliated with the Honors College (including housing expenses!).
The U of U is looking for academically talented, yet financially challenged students to fill these slots although the program is open to anyone. The priority application deadline is NOVEMBER 1 (highly recommended), but they will take applications until Feb. 1. (I know today is Nov. 1 and you probably will not be able to get an application completed today, but if you can, DO! And if you can’t, do it ASAP!)
