Natural and Applied Sciences to award scholarships at annual reception
More than $30K awarded in Natural and Applied Science scholarships
GREEN BAY — The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will honor some of its top Natural and Applied Science scholars at the NAS Scholarship Reception, 2 -3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27 in Phoenix Room B of the University Union.
In a record-breaking year, more than $38,800 in scholarship funding will be given to 37 recipients who are recognized for high grades, outstanding scholarship, innovative research and overall academic excellence.
Chair of the NAS Scholarships Committee Steve Meyer says the UW-Green Bay College of Science and Technology offers many real-world experiences that allow these students to excel.
“Students are provided the opportunity to gain a wealth of experience they likely could not gain from a classroom or lab setting,” said Meyer. “These are invaluable skills our students are learning.”
The event will recognize and honor all the scholarship recipients for their achievements and acknowledge the scholarship sponsors for their generosity. It is open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
