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!
