Why did you apply to become an ASTEO Scholar?
“The ASTEO scholarship promised many things in addition to the substantial grant, such as the opportunity to work on research projects or getting a paid internship in a lab somewhere. I want to go into the science field to do research, so this program seems like an excellent career move for me.”
What are you looking forward to the most at EOU?
“Definitely the plethora of research opportunities within the STEM departments that are available to all students, including freshman and sophomores like myself.”
ASTEO stands for Advancing Science and Technology in Eastern Oregon and was established with a grant from the National Science Foundation’s S-STEM program. Eligible scholars may receive up to $7,500 annually for tuition and fees, depending on unmet need. Scholarship applications are being accepted now through February 1, 2017 for the coming academic year.
