The Scots Science Scholars (S3) program provides enrichment and support for select students who are interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering or math) fields at Maryville College.
The goal of the Scots Science Scholars program is to increase the number of students completing a major in STEM at Maryville College. Selected students must attend a three-week summer bridge program in August 2016. Students must live on campus and have no other responsibilities during that time. Participants are also required to live on campus throughout the academic year.
The four-year program includes the following components:
- An all-expenses paid, on-campus, summer bridge program prior to the start of your freshman year designed to give you early practice with lab and math skills that are necessary in STEM fields
- An $1,150 stipend paid directly to you for attending the summer program
- A curriculum designed to build community and provide academic support, including a specialized first-year sequence tailored to appeal to the interests and needs of S3 scholars
- Research/leadership experience that is integrated with the Maryville College core curriculum, including many opportunities to begin research on exciting STEM projects with faculty at MC
- Research opportunities could include Great Smoky Mountains National Park, UTK research labs, and Oak Ridge National LabA scholarship of at least $21,000 toward MC tuition (this scholarship would replace a student’s MC academic scholarship)

Note: Review of applications will begin on March 4, 2016 and will continue until the 2016-17 Scots Science Scholars team is complete.
