    Science Scholars' Reception

    Please plan on attending the Science Scholars' Reception on Wednesday, September 17 at 6:00 p.m. at the Manse (the President's house). All science majors and scholars are invited and encouraged to go to the reception. The reception is a way to welcome the new Science Scholars while enjoying a casual dinner outdoors with other science students and faculty. Dress is casual but respectable. All science majors and scholars have received both an email invitation and a hard-copy invitation in their campus mailbox. Please email no later than Monday, September 15 as to whether or not you will be able to attend the reception. For any students that are not sure where the Manse is located or who feel uncomfortable arriving alone, a group of students is meeting in the lobby of the Boyd Science Center a few minutes before 6:00 p.m. to walk over together.

    Also, attending the reception enters you into a drawing for a chance to win one of six $15 iTune to be given away. We hope to see you there!

    NPSC offers a two-phase, six-year fellowship program. Students typically apply while seniors in college. Initial support is for two or three years.

The Fellowship covers tuition and fees and provides a generous annual stipend.
