STEM Scholars Program

As a result of generous funding from the Goizueta Foundation and the Frances Marx Shillinglaw Women in Science Endowment Fund, the College has available funding to support faculty-student collaborative research during the summer. For deadline and other information, please contact Molly Embree.

Program Description
The Goizueta Foundation has awarded ASC a three-year grant to establish the STEM Scholars Program. The goal of this program is to provide experiences for STEM students that will prepare them for success in graduate school in STEM fields. For purposes of this grant, STEM fields are defined as astrophysics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, neuroscience and physics. The programmatic activities planned as part of the STEM Scholars Program include, but are not limited to:

Workshops to:

  • Help STEM students succeed in their science and math courses
  • Guide students in the preparation of successful REU and other summer research program applications
  • Prepare students for successful summer research experiences

Funding for:

  • Faculty salaries, student salaries and research supplies for on-campus summer research with ASC faculty
  • Student travel to present research at regional or national meetings of scientific societies
  • Student salaries to complete a mentored-research project at another institution

During June and July 2018, the Goizueta Foundation STEM Scholars Program and the Frances Marx Shillinglaw Women in Science Endowment Fund will provide funding for faculty-student collaborative research, with funding categories and amounts as follows:

  • Faculty salary $3000 (June, 4 weeks) or $6000 (June and July, 8 weeks) (Faculty with active grant funding cannot receive extra salary, but may request funding for one student researcher.)
  • Student salaries** $10/hour, for 40 hours per week up to a maximum of 8 weeks (Faculty without active grant support may request funding for up to two student researchers.)
  • Supplies $750.00
