CHANTILLY, Va., May 1, 2017 – NMR Consulting is offering two scholarships to students seeking a degree in a STEM-related subject area. The Richard Harris Memorial Scholarship, now in its second year, helps reduce financial barriers for students interested in entering college to pursue STEM majors – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
The $1,500 and $1,000 scholarships are awarded based on the student’s academics; leadership abilities in school activities or through work experiences; evidence of STEM interest through academic courses taken or participation in programs or events indicating such interest; and their essay.
Students interested in applying are to write a 500-word essay about a STEM topic they feel passionately about. The NMR team will review all submissions and choose finalists, who will be chosen based on grammar, spelling, and punctuation; originality; how well the applicant explains their topic and why they feel strongly about it; student’s academics (GPA); leadership abilities in school activities or through work experiences; and evidence of STEM interest through academic courses taken or participation in programs or events indicating such interest.
The Richard Harris Memorial Scholarship is open to the referred public, including family members and friends of NMR employees. The name of an NMR employee must be provided on the application.
