The Van Nostrand Scholarship is for single parents who are STEM majors.
This scholarship will support undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need as detailed on the FAFSA form. Awards will be given exclusively to single parents who are majoring in science and who have dependent children. The scholarship covers tuition and fees, as well as a stipend towards educational or childcare costs.
Criteria for awards: Preference for this award will be given to female, single parents with dependent children, who are majoring in science and have demonstrated financial need through the FAFSA document. Students must be in good academic standing, making satisfactory academic progress toward a degree, and have a minimum GPA of 2.0. However, male single parents with dependent children who meet all of the financial and academic criteria applied to female recipients will also be considered.
To apply: Please submit FAFSA form, an unofficial transcript, and a short statement about your major or intent to major to Dr. Deb Donovan, Biology, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). There is no application deadline for this scholarship.
