Shaw Scholars Program

Asbury University is excited to announce the Walt & Rowena Shaw Science & Mathematics Scholarship, a new scholarship designed to support students planning to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Applicants should intend on majoring in a STEM field such as biology, chemistry, mathematics, or computational science in our traditional undergraduate program. Three individual scholarships of $5,000 per year for four years ($20,000 total) will be awarded. These scholarships are made possible by a generous gift from Drs. Walt and Rowena Shaw.

This scholarship is competitive and non-need based. Students must be accepted by the University, declare a major in biology, chemistry, computational mathematics, or computational science, and carry a 4.0 weighted GPA or higher. Candidates with higher academic qualifications and evidence of involvement in mathematics and/or science-related areas will be given priority.
