DSU Optics Center

Body: 
The Optical Science Center for Applied Research (OSCAR) at Delaware State University Artist's rendering of the north-side view of the new Applied Optics Building, (currently under construction). Dear Friend of OSCAR, The opening of the new state-of-the-art Optical Science Center for Applied Research (OSCAR) Building at Delaware State University marks an exciting step forward for DSU and the wider community. With your help, we look forward to expanding upon DSU’s impressive history of accomplishment in optics: Over $40 million in competitive research grants obtained; National and international recognition for its role in NASA’s most recent mission to the planet Mars; New Master of Science and PhD programs in optics; Significant contributions to our understanding of optical techniques for the early detection of diseases, pollutants and other threats to our well-being. The building would not have been possible without the generous support of the State of Delaware, but we need the help of donors like you to help realize the program’s scientific, educational and economic development goals, including: Fostering the development of new high-technology companies; Allowing DSU to recruit and retain highly qualified scientists in the rapidly growing field of optics; Attracting additional federal research dollars; Increasing the size of the undergraduate and graduate programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); Improving STEM education by training teachers and giving opportunities to K-12 students to learn from scientists about their work; Buying new and moving existing equipment. OSCAR is one of the few centers for applied research in optics in the country and one of even fewer with an expertise in the promising field of biophotonics. I hope you will join us in this ambitious journey of discovery, education and economic growth that will benefit not only Kent County, but Delaware and the nation! Sincerely, Dr. Noureddine Melikechi Director, OSCAR Vice President for Research, Innovation and Economic Development

Osher Reentry Scholarship Established

Body: 
A new source of scholarships for non-traditional students became available in January 2012 with a grant to DSU of $50,000 by the Bernard Osher Foundation to establish DSU’s Osher Reentry Scholarship Fund. The Osher Reentry Scholarship Fund will be allocated to non-traditional students at DSU using the following guidelines to select Osher Scholars: Students have experienced a cumulative gap in their education of five or more years. Students are at the undergraduate level and pursuing their first baccalaureate degree. Students anticipate participation in the workforce for a significant period of time subsequent to graduation. Students demonstrate financial need, as well as academic promise and a commitment to complete a degree program.   The new Osher Re-Entry Scholarship is available for full-time and part-time non-traditional students such as Laura Fissette, DSU human resources major from Smyrna. Osher Scholars may be full-time or part-time students, and may be awarded the scholarship again in the second and subsequent years if they continue to meet the criteria and funds are available. The scholarship awards will only be applied to tuition cost. This scholarship opportunity is not available to students seeking an additional degree, or for visiting international students. Students are encouraged to apply today for the Osher Reentry Scholarship. Applications are available at the Offices of Financial Aid and Development.  For more information contact the Office of Development by phoning 302.857.6055 or emailing dsufoundation@desu.edu.
