If you are in need of financial support we hope you will consider these opportunities. Or, if you are simply interested in data science and want to learn more about it, apply for the Winston Data Scholarship! It is a great opportunity to explore this up-and-coming STEM field.
We offer need-based financial support for any student that may require help with the tuition. (We really do!) On the GSTEM application you will see a checkbox to receive more information. Students will then be sent a form that asks for parental income documentation that is submitted to the office of Financial Aid. If a student qualifies, we will offer assistance equaling all or part of the tuition cost. Each year we offer generous financial aid packages and encourage anyone who may need help to apply. (At this time financial aid does not cover the cost of housing.)
Winston Data Scholarship
Most people do not realize how data science affects their every day lives. Traffic jam? That’s data. Searching for a good brunch place? That’s data. Are those shoes you want available in your size? That’s data. And it’s an integral part of science and research. Learning how to collect, analyze, and interpret data is quickly becoming one of the most sought after skills in STEM.
The Winston Data Scholarship is a merit-based, competitive opportunity open to any student interested in learning more about data science. Recipients are required to perform a small, data-science project to complement their regularly assigned summer research project. We provide all the resources. The student provides the curiosity.
On the GSTEM application applicants will submit an additional essay on data science (instructions are provided on the application) which will be reviewed by our admissions committee. The Winston Data Scholarship covers the program’s tuition in full. (At this time the scholarship does not cover the cost of housing.)
