Deadline for Science/Math Scholarships is March 14

UNCG’s STAMPS Science/Math Scholarship program offers scholarships averaging $6,750 per year to talented students majoring in science or math. Application deadline is March 14 for scholarships for 2011-12.

Interested students must major in biology, chemistry and biochemistry, computer science, geography (concentrations in Earth science, environmental science or GIS science only), mathematics and statistics or physics and astronomy. The scholarships are administered by UNCG’s STAMPS program (Science, Technology and Math Preparation Scholarships). They are funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

The STAMPS program is currently supporting nine UNCG students this semester with scholarships totaling $20,250, and plans to expand the number of scholarships next year. The NSF grant seeks to encourage talented, financially needy science, technology, engineering or math students to pursue a career in science or math and enter the science workforce. The program reflects the national need to increase substantially the number of American scientists and engineers.

STAMPS Scholars in spring 2011 include Pablo Diaz, Adam Eury, April Frake, Max Graves, Kyle Gutierrez, Westley Moor, Anna Tuck, Jose Velasco and Brandon Yates. This group includes three seniors, one junior, three sophomores and two freshmen.
