21 Apr UW-Stout awarded National Science Foundation grant for STEM scholarships
MENOMONIE – The University of Wisconsin-Stout recently received a grant that will be allocated as scholarships for students studying science. The National Science Foundation awarded a Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics grant of $567,000 to UW-Stout’s applied science program for support of the project “Polytechnic Mission, Applied Science Vision.”
Beginning in fall 2010, incoming students in the applied sciences have the opportunity to apply for $10,000 scholarships and current and future applied science students may apply for $5,000 scholarships.
The program gives grants to institutions of higher education to support scholarships for students who are talented academically and need financial assistance to fund their education. The program enables students to enter the workforce following completion of an associate, baccalaureate or graduate level degree in science and engineering disciplines. This is the first-time for the university to receive this renewable grant.
