Early Identification Program Scholar’s Application Extended
Description of the award
The Presidential Scholarship is intended to support students who have clearly demonstrated scholastic achievement, an interest in research, and graduate degree goals. The award has historically ranged from $3,500-$4,500 for the academic year, which is contingent upon continued availability of funds. Upon receipt of the award, students will be expected to submit a formal research proposal, conduct three consecutive quarters of research, meet regularly with the EIP staff, present their year’s work at the joint Early Identification/McNair Program Annual Spring Research Conference in conjunction with the Undergraduate Research Symposium, and comply with the other requirements of Presidential Scholars. Awards are contingent upon the continued availability of funds.
An applicant should be either an Early Identification Program or a McNair Program student who:
- is interested in pursuing a research project with the supervision of a faculty member for the three consecutive quarters of the 2013-2014 academic year;
- plans to attend graduate school; and
- has a minimum of 125 credits.
We give priority to students with a minimum GPA of 3.0, and who regularly use the services of our programs.
