Kenyon has updated its plans for returning to campus, offering in-person and remote instruction. Read more here.
All first-year applicants, including Early Decision applicants, who are a U.S. Citizen, U.S. National, U.S. Dual, U.S. Permanent Resident, or U.S. Asylee or Refugee are welcome to submit an application for this scholarship. It will be awarded to selected students who demonstrate financial need and wish to pursue a major within a STEM field. Those wanting to be considered for a STEM Scholarship must submit their form by December 1 for Early Decision 1 and February 3 for Early Decision 2 and Regular Decision.
The STEM Scholars program is supported in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
This scholarship eliminates the loan and work-study obligations of the financial aid package for all four years, and provides an annual book and supply allowance as well as a one-time allowance towards the purchase of an appropriate computer and associated software for their academic work.
STEM Scholars will participate in activities emphasizing academic leadership, professional development, and STEM-focused community service.
STEM Scholarships will be renewed annually for students who demonstrate satisfactory progress towards a STEM degree by: (a) meeting or exceeding the college’s existing academic standards, (b) taking adequate coursework to attain a STEM degree, (c) declaring a STEM major by the beginning of their junior year, per collegiate requirements, and (d) participate in program evaluation activities such as surveys, interviews, or data requests, as required by the National Science Foundation.
Some STEM Scholarship applicants may be eligible for the KEEP Scholarship. Details concerning eligibility and requirements for KEEP Scholarships are available on the KEEP scholarship website.
STEM Scholarships are determined on a competitive basis and require the completion of both the Common Application and a brief scholarship form. With questions regarding the STEM Scholar program, please contact Prof. Karen Hicks at 740-427-5379 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
