Student Award and Support

The SciData program's (8) students will work toward earning their master's degree in Information Science (MIS).  The SciData program will cover the costs of tuition for the students.  The students will also receive a stipend, a laptop computer and health insurance through the University.

In addition to the tuition award, the SciData students will travel to England (summer 2013) to learn about science e-publishing and the students will receive a technology package that includes their own laptop.  Students will also complete an individualized research project under the supervision of scientific and academic mentors.

In participating in the SciData program, each student will be responsible for working 10 hours per week when the University is in session.  The students will work with the SciData's program coordinators to find organizational sites that suit the students' interests.
