Make an Impact

Change a Student’s Life

The students passing through the classrooms and laboratories of our College today are the scientists, engineers, medical professionals and science teachers of tomorrow. They are our future. Contributing to a scholarship fund, or creating a new one in someone’s honor, is a wonderful way of rewarding accomplishment and encouraging a deserving student who is struggling with the high cost of a college education. Scholarship support often does change a student’s life, as it can make a difference in whether a student can afford to attend college.  Scroll down to view a list of current scholarships earmarked for students in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.  For further information or to discuss other options for making an impact, please contact the CNSM Dean’s Office or the UCA Foundation.
