Faculty at EOU regularly involve undergraduates in their research, giving them the opportunity to contribute to larger projects and become comfortable using state-of-the-art equipment in the university science center. Faculty advisors also work closely with the ASTEO Scholars, serving as mentors in career preparation and facilitating seminar courses and field trips. These and other efforts align with the National Science Foundation’s goal to support students intending to join industry or enter graduate school after completing their undergraduate degrees.
Eligible ASTEO Scholars may receive up to $7,500 annually for tuition and fees, depending on their unmet need. Preference is given to applicants demonstrating both academic potential or ability and financial need. Students may also combine awards from the federal Pell program, Oregon Opportunity Grant, university fee remissions and other funding sources for additional financial assistance.
