CSM offers scholarships
Thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation, the College of Saint Mary in Omaha is now part of the Marie Curie Scholars Program, which provides significant financial support and resources for talented young women who study science or math.
Marie Curie Scholars may receive up to $18,000 annually for four years in gift aid as long as they continue to meet program requirements. Participants also will have access to academic support programs such as designated tutors, research opportunities, seminars and clubs.
To be eligible for the Marie Curie Scholars Program, students must be a high school graduate; major in math, biology, or chemistry; be a U.S. citizen; have an ACT of 22 or a SAT of 1000; and have a minimum high school G.P.A. of 3.5.
Applications are competitive and require completion of an application form, submission of an essay describing interest in math or science, one letter of recommendation, a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, and an interview with a CSM faculty member.
