New Growing the Legacy Scholarship Program from Intel

AISES has received a $1.32 million contribution from Intel to support undergraduate and graduate scholarships for Native Americans. The support is part of a partnership between Intel and AISES to increase the number and success of Native American students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

The Intel Growing the Legacy Scholarship Program will support 20 graduate and 20 undergraduate students each year. The program includes financial support, mentorship, paid internship opportunities, and, upon successful graduation, employment opportunities with Intel. As Intel will provide opportunities for paid internships, students will also be evaluated based on their interest in participating in an Intel internship in Summer 2018.

Applications will be accepted until May 1, 2017.
