RIC Awarded NSF Grant to Support Students in Science, Computing, and Mathematics
RIC has received a grant of approximately $600,000 from the National Science Foundation to provide scholarships for students majoring in mathematics, computer science, biology, chemistry, or physics, starting in Fall 2009 and continuing through the 2012-2013 academic year. Scholarship winners will receive up to $5000 each per year, depending on need.
Ten students will be admitted to the program each year. They will become an important part of the STEM community at Rhode Island College, taking carefully selected courses together for their first two years as part of a Learning Community and developing strong relationships with faculty and peers in the STEM disciplines. They will be introduced to research as freshmen, join a research group as sophomores, and design and complete a research project in their junior and senior years under the guidance of a faculty mentor in their field.
