TRAIN - STEM Scholarship

Program Synopsis:

The TRAIN (TRAnsfer to Interdisciplinary Natural sciences) Scholarship program is a competitive program that provides funding for transfer students from Glendale Community College, Phoenix College, and South Mountain Community College, in a variety of science and math-related fields. It offers valuable training and mentoring throughout your undergraduate career. Program participation will make you more competitive for outside internships, provide you with more in-depth training in your STEM field of interest, and increase your laboratory or numerical modeling research skills. This program is available for all School of Mathematical and Natural Science majors and STEM focused BAS majors within ASU's New College who transferred from GCC, PC, or SMCC. The scholarship includes $5000 a semester for up to 4 semesters (renewable if progressing appropriately), mentoring, and research/internship opportunities. 

Student goals that include health care practitioner endpoints (Medical Doctor, Pharmacist, Physical Therapist, Physician Assistant, Nurse, etc.) are not eligible for this program.
