Parkland Science Scholars to Hold Informational Webinars

Parkland to Hold Informational Webinars for New Science Program

Parkland College will be hosting two informational webinars for the new Parkland Science Scholars program.

Students, parents, and community members who are interested in the program are invited to join Dr C. Britt Carlson on Zoom for a more in-depth explanation about Parkland Science Scholars, general information about applying to Parkland, and frequently asked questions.

There will be two webinars; the same information will be covered in both sessions.

Students and parents are asked to register at the above links for their preferred session. Instructors, counselors, and other community members can use this link to join the session without registration.

Parkland Science Scholars is a new program designed to support low-income students working toward their degrees in science. Students are awarded $2,450 per semester in financial support, for a total of four semesters, and are individually mentored by Parkland faculty.

Other support structures include peer and UIUC-graduate student mentoring, summer research opportunities, leadership opportunities in Parkland clubs, and recognition by the Parkland Board of Trustees following completion of the program.

Applications are being accepted now. For more information about Parkland Science Scholars, please visit parkland.edu/ParklandScienceScholars or contact Dr. Carlson at ccarlson@parkland.edu.

Parkland Science Scholars is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
