Barry University Engaged STEM Scholars

About the Grant Engaged STEM Scholars Grant

An “engaged” student is one who is curious, interested, and motivated to learn. If this sounds like you, we hope you will consider applying to be part of our program. Applications open in October 2020, and the deadline to apply is March 19, 2021 11:59 PM. Have a look at our Application Criteria for more details.

Based on SAT or ACT scores, applicants may be asked to complete our Summer Scholars Program in June-July 2021 before becoming an Engaged STEM Scholar.

Engaged STEM Scholars will begin as STEM majors at Barry in the Fall semester of 2021 and will get to take advantage of extra financial support (based on financial need), peer and faculty mentoring and building connections with other Scholars by taking classes together and participating in planned activities outside of class. This is in addition to the opportunities available to all Barry STEM majors, like: faculty-mentored undergraduate research, hands-on experiential learning, community-oriented learning, science-related clubs and societies, connections to industry ad job pathways, internship opportunities and more!
