NMSU-A Students Dominate STEM Scholarship Awards
NMSUA Students Dominate STEM Scholarship Awards
Four NMSUA STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) students were awarded scholarships to participate in the Summer Community College Opportunity for Research Experience (SCCORE), funded by the National Science Foundation. The program is designed to help students further realize their potential and build academic and research skills. NMSUA was awarded more scholarships than any other participating college. Alamogordo students competed with community college students from Santa Fe, Dona Ana, Luna, Grants and Carlsbad.
Reece Broughton, Joshua Cope, Michael Finley and Margaret Turpin were awarded research apprenticeships and will participate on an NMSU faculty member’s research project this summer. Scholarship winners will also receive free room and board for a month, paid university registration and course enrollment fees, paid activity fees, and a student stipend of $1,500. Students will present their research at a program-end Symposium and at the New Mexico AMP Student Research Conference in Las Cruces on October 4. Students interested in applying for next year’s scholarship should contact Christina Sarabia Stroud (firstname.lastname@example.org; 439-3750), NMSUA STEM Outreach and Transfer Coordinator.
