The SURGE Program:
Scholarships for Undergraduates
to Reach Goals in Education
The Department of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Arlington has recently received a 4-year S-STEM (Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) grant to support its SURGE program. The grant is funded by the National Science Foundation.
The main objectives of the program are:
- to improve educational opportunities for mathematically talented and financially needy students at UT Arlington by providing them with S-STEM scholarships of up to $10,000/year/per person for up to 3 years, depending on demonstrated financial need, academic performance, and available funding; and
- to provide the SURGE program students with strong mentoring and other support to ensure they complete their degrees in a timely manner and are well-prepared to enter the workforce or to continue to graduate school.
