IUI-Indianapolis Project SEED Scholarship (Science)

This scholarship was established by Dr. Rosanne Bonjouklian, a valued friend to the School and an active supporter of the Project SEED Summer Research Program for high school students. The scholarship supports former student participants in Project SEED.

The Indianapolis Project SEED offers a four-year renewable scholarship (up to $2,000) for ACS-Stipend students who have participated in the summer research program as a high school student and then enroll in the IUI School of Science for their college education.

The Project SEED Scholarship is intended for Indianapolis-area students who have successfully participated in Project SEED, a program of the American Chemical Society—Indiana Section. Students must attend IUI and pursue a degree in the School of Science with a major in biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental science, forensic and investigative sciences, geology, interdisciplinary studies, mathematics, neuroscience, physics, and/or psychology. Consideration may be given to students who pursue IUI degrees in engineering, technology or one of the health sciences, such as nursing and public health.

Scholarships will be awarded up to $2,000, renewable for four years pending a grade point average of at least 3.00 in maintained, to former Project SEED participants to pursue science or science-related degrees, including Nursing, at IUI. Students receiving an Indiana 21st Century scholarship will be awarded $1,000 per year for four years.
