From shaping our beliefs, to shifting our behavior, to redesigning our interactions, technology is rapidly changing the world. The rise of technology has created a wealth of personal and professional opportunities and the ability to leave a positive dent in the universe.
One of the best ways to capture this wealth of opportunity is through pursuing a STEM degree. By getting trained in the fundamentals of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, you position yourself to understand the rapidly shifting technological landscape and to be a valuable contributor to the world that’s changing around you.
The Palmyra-Eagle Panther of the Year Scholarship exists to help current Palmyra-Eagle students and alumni who intend to leverage a STEM degree to make the world a better place.
The scholarship is funded by Paul-Michael Schreiber, an alumnus of Palmyra-Eagle who received a B.S. in Neurobiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and who has built a career as a software engineer in the tech industry.
The scholarship is open to any Palmyra-Eagle senior who plans to attend university and pursue a STEM degree or any alumni who are currently pursuing a STEM degree.
How do you plan to leverage what you learn in your STEM degree to make the world a better place?
The application deadline is Apr 30, 2021. Winners will be announced on May 31, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500. It will be awarded to 1 winner every 1 year.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 31, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
