  Science Programs Just for Youth K-12!   "Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of imagination."  ~John Dewey, The Quest for Certainty, 1929   The College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology is committed to providing a high-quality science-based education -- not just for university-enrolled students!      We are faculty, staff and students actively involved in inspiring and enriching the lives of the youth in our immediate (and extended) community aspiring towards careers in the natural and physical sciences through various outreach efforts. The programs listed below are available "just for youth K-12." They range from open-enrollment notices for summer camps, to information about new programs and scholarships available to graduating high school students specifically considering the sciences at DSU. Please click on the links to download information or feel free to contact the program administrators directly with inquiries.   Science Events (not necessarily during the summer) Summer Programs $$$ for College   Science Events (not necessarily during the summer) Are you a student who has an interest in science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics? Then you won't want to miss this! Join us for the 1st annual Kent County Delaware Science Fair! Senator Chris Coons and a special guest speaker will be on hand to welcome and celebrate our students grades 5-12 who will show off their aptitude for science research and compete for cool prizes. Also, see the 1/10 model of the Mars Rover. Whether you would like to compete in the research expo or you just want to come see what your peers are up to, we hope to see you there!

Graduate Partnership Award

Body: 
  Program Overview Thank you for your interest in Delaware State University's Graduate Partnership Award Program.  This program, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health Bridge-to-the-Doctorate program, establishes a "bridge,"  helping students to obtain a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science by providing the financial support to pursue graduate level studies, providing faculty mentors to guide students academically and professionally, and surrounding students with a support network of staff assisting them in accomplishing their goals.  The program seeks to encourage students’ interest in graduate study by removing the financial barriers associated with continued study and hesitancy surrounding admission pre-requisites. The successful applicant will plan to pursue a Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Science, as indicated on the list of sanctioned programs of study (see below).  Applicants to the program are evaluated on the basis of their record of achievement, as well as their research experiences, motivation, and connection to their field of study.   We look forward to receiving your application for graduate admission to the Graduate Partnership Award Program.   Please forward your inquires to the Project Director, Dr. Melissa Harrington, 302.857.7117 or email: mharrington@desu.edu.   Sanctioned Programs of Study Master of Science Biological Sciences Chemistry Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience Natural Resources Plant Science Food Science  Back to College Homepage
