Thanks to a major grant from the National Science Foundation, those interested in taking science, math, computer or nanotechnology courses at Dakota County Technical College this fall are eligible to receive up to $3,125 in scholarships toward their education.
This is the second year for the CSEM (Computers, Science, Engineering, Mathematics) grant program from the NSF, which runs at DCTC through 2007. The CSEM scholars will each receive $1,562 for the current semester, and another $1,563 for the spring term if they maintain their grade average.
Applicants interested in CSEM scholarships must have their applications in by July 1 for the fall semester. Any student pursuing an A.A.S. degree in any DCTC computer or telecommunications program is eligible to apply in the college’s Financial Aid office.
Students who apply for the grant stipends will be judged on their academic record, financial need, a written essay, and letters of recommendation.
