The Center for Research in Computer Vision is pleased to offer scholarships in the range of $4,000 to $10,000 for first year transfer students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields, through a project funded by the National Science Foundation. These scholarships are renewable up to four years; they are intended for students that might not have the opportunity to attend university otherwise, and they are provided for students that have demonstrated need for financial aid. Scholarship recipients will be privileged to several resources and activities that are intended to ensure the student’s success in completing their undergraduate degrees.
- To recruit and attract students into STEM fields, and cultivate proficiency in STEM fields.
- To provide opportunity and support for academically talented, financially needy transfer students.
Each scholarship recipient will be assigned a faculty mentor, who will meet with students regularly to help them develop a program of study, and a peer mentor, who can offer advice and encouragement. All students will participate in various group and individual activities and seminars given by university faculty and industry professionals.
