2013 STATESS Celebration

The Department of Mathematics and the Center for Research in Computer Vision are pleased to offer 20 scholarships per year in the range of $4,000 to $10,000 per year for recent undergraduate and transfer students and first year graduate students in Mathematics and Computer Science as well as in other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields, through a project funded by the National Science Foundation. These scholarships are renewable up to four years, and they are intended for students that might not have the opportunity to attend university otherwise. Scholarship recipients will be privileged to several resources and activities that are intended to ensure the student's success in completing their undergraduate or graduate degrees.

The Goals:

The Activities:

Each scholarship recipient will be assigned a faculty mentor, who will meet with students monthly to help them develop a program of study, and a peer mentor, who can offer advice and encouragement. All students will participate in various group and individual activities and seminars given by university faculty and industry professionals.

Who Can Apply?

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2014-2015 academic year

Acceptable STEM fields include: biological (except medicine and other clinical fields), physical sciences (physics, chemistry, astronomy, material science, etc.), mathematics, computer and information science, geosciences, engineering, or technology areas associated with the preceding fields. Students completing the project will be streamlined into existing research groups that have good industrial partnerships. These industrial connections will be used to place qualified students directly into the workforce.
