The SSCT is offering two undergraduate scholarships of $1,000, one for students majoring in science and one for a student in any major (or who has not decided upon a major). A science major is determined as any field which is based on using the scientific method.
The students must be currently enrolled full-time at an accredited college or university and have completed at least one semester by the application deadline of April 1, 2017. The scholarship is not limited to freshman, however, it is the intent of the SSCT Board of Directors to continue to fund the scholarship to students as they progress through the four years of most undergraduate curricula.
As indicated on the application form, you must submit a completed application, a copy of all college or university transcripts (minimum 3.0GPA)
, and a written statement with background and career goal information. In addition to two recommendation letters, one from your advisor and another from a faculty member.
For your information, colleges and universities have financial aid or financial assistance offices whose web sites list other scholarships available. As deadlines come and go, scholarships are added and removed from the listings, so students are encouraged to check the websites regularly. Another source for scholarship information online is Scholarship America.org.
We hope higher education is a positive learning experience for you and we look forward to your success.
