Innovations in Medical Professions Building (IM 109)

Anne Nelson, Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Programs and Student Services will speak and discuss ways that Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) students can enhance their major with business education.

According to the Center on Education and the Workforce, 8 million new jobs will be available in STEMM-related fields by 2018. The Choose Ohio First Scholarship Program is part of the state's strategic effort to significantly strengthen Ohio's position in world markets such as aerospace, medicine, computer technology and alternative energy.

The Choose Ohio First Scholarship Program is a state-funded program aimed at graduating more students STEMM. The State of Ohio recognizes that a workforce trained in these areas is essential for strengthening our economy.

At CSU, STEMM scholars are pursing degrees in biology, chemistry, engineering, math, medicine, nursing, physics, science, technology and related fields. Students interested in teaching a STEMM discipline also qualify for the scholarship program.

Scholarships can range between $1,500 - $7,000. These scholarships are renewable and may be awarded even if a student is already receiving scholarship support from other programs (Honors, Voyager, Athletics, etc.).  Scholarships are for tuition, so a student with a full tuition scholarship is not eligible. Among students selected to become Choose Ohio First scholars, award amounts are determined based upon unmet financial need with all eligible students awarded at least $1,500 per academic year.
