U of U: ACCESS Program for Women in Science & Mathematics, 2015


SCHOLARSHIP ALERT:  If you are a female and planning to attend the U of U in the Fall of 2015, make sure you look into this program!

Too many young women believe that only men can have a successful career in the sciences, or worry that studying science at a major research university would be “too hard” for them.  ACCESS exists to dispel these myths, and to provide female students with an early introduction to science at the U, a strong foundation in research, and a supportive network of classmates with whom they can collaborate (and commiserate!) throughout their years at the U.  And, of course, it comes with a $3,500 award value that doesn’t conflict with other merit scholarships new students may earn!

Deadline:  March 1, 2015 (Students accepted into the ACCESS program must also apply for Summer 2015 admission to the U of U.  ACCESS applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for U of U admission no later than March 15, 2015, in order to avoid late application processing fees.)
