Scholarships for Success in Computational Science (SSICS)
Professor Tom Hagedorn (Mathematics & Statistics) and I have been awarded a grant from the NSF S-STEM program (Award # 1356235). This grant forms the basis of a sustainable initiative to recruit, retain and graduate more students in computer science and mathematics at TCNJ. Beginning in Fall 2014, the Scholarships for Success in Computational Science project will fund approximately 27 scholarships per year for computer science and mathematics students who will be organized into learning communities and engage in research focused on a common theme of computational science. The project will also provide significant advising, mentoring, and tutoring services that supplement those already provided by the college. Contact me for more information.

To participate in the program, complete the application form found here.

Project CABECT: Collaborating Across Boundaries to Engage undergraduates in Computational Thinking. Funded through NSF Award #1141170. Award period August 15, 2012 to July 31, 2015.
