SUNY Oneonta Receives $600K Science Grant

Facebook

SUNY Oneonta has received over a $600,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for “Critical Mass: Math and Science Scholars,” a scholarship program aimed at enabling students who would otherwise face significant barriers to graduate and enter careers or advanced degree programs in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines.

The five-year grant, which was awarded through the NSF’s S-stem program, will support 24 SUNY Oneonta students in the fields of biology, chemistry & biochemistry, earth & atmospheric sciences, mathematics, computer science & statistics, physics & astronomy, or environmental science with scholarships of up to $5,400 per year.

Incoming freshmen who meet the program’s academic requirements and demonstrate substantial financial need will be recruited to begin the program this fall. The goal is to have at least half of the scholars come from the college assistance migrant program and educational opportunity program.
