Sometimes Scholarships come in different forms than what you might consider the norm. Take the ACCESS Program at the U of U for example. This program is directed at female students who will be attending the U of U in the Fall of 2014 (you will have to apply for Summer 2014 if interested). It differs from typical scholarships in that it is a seven-week summer science course designed to introduce students to university-level study in science and mathematics. However, it is similar to typical scholarships because it includes lots of great perks: an opportunity to spend the summer on campus, get a jump start on college classes, and earn multiple awards valued at $3,500 as well as receive a $1,000 Summer housing waiver. That’s a total of $4,500!
If you are a female and planning to attend the U of U this fall (2014), make sure you look into this program!
