Students have identified participation in a research internship as one of the top factors contributing to their academic success. An internship increases their learning, improves their critical thinking, and fosters an understanding of how real science is conducted. Students also can experience the challenge and exhilaration of real science by presenting and defending their findings at a national conference.
Academic Excellence Scholarships
Scholarships recognize and validate student academic achievement, along with providing funds that students may use to pay for books and tuition.
There are thirteen Academic Excellence Scholarships in the School of MSE. Nine are funded by the LIPP Foundation and four are funded by the Garden of Giving Endowment.
The scholarships are offered every year with an application deadline in March. See Scholarships on the MSE homepage for more information.
