The Marion VanNostrand Scholarship is for undergraduate women who are custodial single parents with dependent children, who are majoring in a STEM* field, have demonstrated financial need via the FAFSA, are in good academic standing, making progress towards a degree and have a minimum GPA of 2.0. However, men who are custodial single parents with dependent children who meet all of the financial and academic criteria applied to women recipients will also be considered.
The scholarship pays the full cost of in-state tuition and student fees. Each recipient also received $1000 per year towards textbooks, supplies and child care. Recipients will be supported to graduation if they remain in good academic standing and are making progress towards their degree.
*STEM - Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering (ABET accredited programs only), Environmental Science, Geology, Mathematics, Physics and CSE Science Education.
