About The Awards
Ohio residents who are interested in majoring in any of the STEMM fields are invited to apply for a Choose Ohio First Scholarship. Award amounts range from $1,500-$5,200 and are given in addition to university merit-based awards. Two avenues for consideration are available under the COF umbrella: Bioinformatics and the Dayton Regional collaborative.
This field combines biological and computer sciences to develop innovations that have led to breakthroughs in curing diseases, agricultural advancement and industrial operations. The ability to use massive amounts of data to help shape experimental findings has opened new pathways in scientific inquiry. At Wittenberg, students interested in bioinformatics have interned with Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Avetec and Qbase.
This Wittenberg University COF seeks to support Ohio residents who have a desire to teach middle and high school students in the content areas of math or science. Additionally, we seek to support Ohio teachers who wish to extend their knowledge, skills, and pedagogy in the areas of math or science. Undergraduate students are included in our Noyce community of teachers and learners and are afforded internship opportunities, as well as participation in gatherings to extend our understanding of pedagogy in math and science. Our graduate students work with fellow teachers in cohorts as they pursue a Master of Arts in Education with a specialization in math and science degree. Our cohorts take classes together, study, together and often conduct research together in their pursuit of a better understanding of student learning, curriculum, assessment and best pedagogical practices in their discipline.
The Dayton Regional COF scholarship seeks to bring together Ohio residents who have a desire to study any of the STEMM fields and meet with faculty in science programs. This collaborative network brings students, professors, and future employers together to help build a support system for COF scholars. With the shared efforts brought together by numerous partners, chosen recipients will have the opportunity to gain exceptional internship experiences in the booming science and technology driven areas of the Dayton region.
A description and the eligibility requirement for each of the scholarships are given below. Please note that for the COF-Dayton Regional, preference will be given to those students who also wish to minor in computational science.
