The University of Evansville’s Computers in Science and Math (CiSM) project has received nearly a million dollars in grant money for student scholarships.
Students majoring in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, environmental science, mathematics, physics, or statistics and data science will be able to apply for the scholarship money.
The project is funded by the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) program.
The CiSM scholarships will be available for the fall of 2020 semester. These scholarships will provide up to $10,000 per year for four years to two groups of seven or eight students.
These students will also be part of an interdisciplinary learning community.
In line with the NSF’s mission to improve STEM undergraduate education, another important goal of the project is to determine the impacts of the learning community on CiSM scholars.
