AUSTIN, Texas - A $600,000 grant from the National Science Foundation will be used to provide scholarships and academic support for high-achieving math and science students at St. Edward’s University.
The new St. Edward’s Rewarding Achievement in Mathematics and Science Scholarship (RAMS) is designed to satisfy the unmet financial needs of high-achieving students who are pursuing studies in science, with special priority for students majoring in biochemistry, bioinformatics, chemical sciences, computer sciences or mathematics. Eligible students may receive up to $10,000 per year, renewable for up to four years. A select group of incoming freshmen students who meet the eligibility criteria have been invited to apply for the RAMS scholarship.
The RAMS program is under the direction of St. Edward’s University faculty member Richard L. Kopec. Faculty members Carol Gee, Michael U. Kart, and Charles R. Hauser will comprise the discipline-based selection committee.
