The Michigan Tech SSEED program (funded by NSF S-STEM) will award 35 undergraduate scholarships of $1,000-$5,000 to junior and senior engineering students and five graduate fellowships of $8,000 to engineering students in 2014-15. Please share this information with qualified students.
The purpose of the undergraduate scholarships is to improve the retention of upper-division engineering students who have financial need and other risk factors that make it difficult to complete their undergraduate degree. The purpose of the graduate fellowships is to improve the recruitment of women and minorities to graduate school in engineering. The program also features mentoring and professional development opportunities. Additional information and applications can be found at www.doe.mtu.edu/sseed/. Spring application deadlines are Mar. 17 for undergraduate scholarships and May 1 for graduate fellowships. For questions, contact Michele Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org, 7-3025).
