Why did you apply to become an ASTEO Scholar?
“When I got accepted into EOU, I went straight to the scholarship page to see what Eastern offered. The ASTEO scholarship was the first one that popped up on the page. It included one of my majors that I am hoping to get, so that’s another reason I applied.”
What are you looking forward to the most at EOU?
“Graduating – that is the ultimate goal right now. I want to get the most out of my classes, and learn and gather as much information as my brain can hold. I’m also really looking forward to making and building new relationships with people I meet throughout my years here at EOU.”
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 ASTEO 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.
