The program welcomes applications from students needing support for research projects, travel expenses, and training supplies associated with their academic pursuits in one of the STEM fields.
The scholarship will fund one undergraduate or graduate student for one year, providing $3,000 in direct costs. The scholarship is merit-based, and applicants can show their qualifications and need in the application process.
LabRoots supports undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. This program is open to students both in, and outside the US; there are no geographical limits for applicants. LabRoots wishes to encourage all students to stay in science and aims to help students work towards their research and educational goals.
"Dream bigger, go higher, and remember that it takes grit to embark on the journeys that are rewarding but full of obstacles. Look for that silver-lining in the difficulties, learn from the mistakes, and be a better person so that we can help others in need. The only way that we can become "stronger" is by "lifting" others and don't forget to show gratitude to people and things that shape us who we are."
LabRoots will review all applicants and the winner of the scholarship will be notified by email before October 4, 2019.
Selection is based on academic achievement and on the written proposal.
