According to a report by the Center on Education and the Workforce, eight million new jobs will be available in STEM-related fields by 2018. People with a bachelor's degree in a STEM major earn roughly $500,000 more over their lifetimes than non-STEM majors.
As a BW freshman, you can collaborate with faculty, work in state-of-the-art facilities and conduct research. Why wait until you are an upperclassman? Having the opportunity to gain four years of hands-on experience before you graduate sets you apart from the competition!
The Choose Ohio First STEM Scholarship Program is funded by the State of Ohio on an annual basis as part of the state's strategic effort to significantly strengthen Ohio's position in world markets such as aerospace, medicine, computer technology and alternative energy.
