COSMOS (Creating Opportunities in Science and Mathematics for Occidental Students)
First-year students interested in pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors can now apply for a scholarship from the Creating Opportunities in Science and Mathematics for Occidental Students (COSMOS) program until April 15 2016.
The National Science Foundation will grant scholarships and support advising through a super-mentor program in which faculty advise STEM students throughout their college careers. From 2016–2021, the COSMOS program will affect a total of three annual cohorts of eight first-year students, all of whom will receive up to $8,000 for each of their three remaining years at Occidental — ultimately giving over $500,000 in financial aid to 24 students to assist them in achieving their goals involving science and mathematics.
