Jarvis Christian College has been awarded a $1.9 million grant from the National Science Foundation. The grant will be used to assist Jarvis students who are majoring in biology, chemistry or mathematics. The National Science Foundation money, which will be disbursed to the Hawkins, Texas, college through 2012, will also be used to support undergraduate research in science and math.
The NSF grant will be available to Jarvis juniors and seniors. In addition, the students selected to receive the scholarships will be obligated to complete a stint as a faculty-supervised lab assistant in their discipline during a minimum of two first-year lab periods. Jarvis Christian College is related by covenant to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Learn more about the NSF grant. [PDF]
