About the Scholarship
“Project SEED influenced my education and career plan by opening my eyes to the possibilities of lab work. I grew professionally during the project, as I learned a great deal about ethics in science, how to work in a lab environment, the importance of meeting deadlines, and the importance of thorough data collection. The project helped me understand that I have potential as a chemist. I am planning on pursuing an analytical chemistry degree and finding a career in the chemistry field. Project SEED completely changed my plans for my future, and I am thankful for that.”
Project SEED scholarships are nonrenewable and only awarded to first-year college students. Selection is based on achievement in school, success in the Project SEED program, financial need, and intended chemical-related field of scientific study.
The scholarships are intended to assist former SEED participants in their transition from high school to college and consist of up to $5,000.
To be eligible for a Project SEED College Scholarship, a high school must be a senior and have worked at least one summer at a science institute under the Project SEED program. Scholarships are restricted to students who plan to pursue in a chemical science or engineering field such as chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry, materials science, or some other closely related major.
Project SEED College Scholarship Applications are to be submitted only by students who have participated in the Summer I or Summer II SEED program and who are entering their senior year in the fall.
