Minimum Qualifications:


1. Be admitted to APSU with at least 60 semester credit-hours earned.

2. Declare major in a STEM field with a 3.2 grade-point average.

Application Materials:

2. Submit current resume/vitae.

3. Provide statement of impact, 500 words or less, in which you address how this opportunity will impact you personally, financially and professionally.

At the end of each semester, Eriksson Undergraduate Scholars who maintain a 3.2 term and cumulative GPA will be invited to continue participation as a scholar without the need for reapplication.
