Be the Hero of Your Own EPIC!
The Expanding Participation in Computing through Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (EPIC) program is designed to motivate and enable low-income and academically talented students – especially women, members of minority populations, students with disabilities, first-generation college students and those from rural communities – to earn baccalaureate degrees in computer engineering technology, software engineering technology, and information technology at Oregon Institute of Technology. Students selected into the program will receive an award up to $6,100. Students may use the scholarship award for tuition, books, supplies and/or equipment.
In addition, scholarship recipients will be assigned a faculty mentor, and will participate in special activities designed to foster successful completion of their degrees.
We are not accepting applications for this scholarship for the academic year 2013-2014. Awards will continue for applicants from previous years. If you have any questions, please contact Cristina Negoita, Department of Mathematics, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
