NSF funds Engineering Scholarships

I received a link to this article from a blog reader about a new National Science Foundation funded scholarship program at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville. The new scholarship program benefits the Engineering Program at this University: The article - NSF funding engineering at SIUE.

This is a great thing and especially rare. For the most part, NSF primarily throws money at science faculty (professors and departments) and at graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. NSF does offer a lot incentives and money for summer programs for undergrads, but college scholarships for undergrads --- I'd never heard of it before today -- and I am not ashamed to admit I have received a huge chunk of NSF money!

But this is very exciting....So, if you're a college-bound student interested in Engineering, you should definitely consider applying to this university and apply for this very lucrative scholarship. NSBE people, are you tuned in?

Good luck.
