The purpose of the George and Patricia Semb Science Education Scholarship Fund is to provide scholarships to students in the Greater Kansas City area who desire to become science teachers|
|The students eligible for scholarship assistance must be enrolled in a secondary or post-secondary institution in the Greater Kansas City area and must be interested in becoming science teachers at any level (elementary, high school or college). Students must demonstrate a passion for science, state an unequivocal desire to become a science teacher, and demonstrate a record of academic commitment and achievement. (For purposes of these criteria, sciences may include, but are not limited to archeology, biology, chemistry, economics, geography, physics, and psychology, but shall not include health-related professions such as medicine, nursing or dentistry.) While “becoming a science teacher” might imply that we are looking for students who want to major in education, there is no requirement in these scholarships that students must major in education. Furthermore, we are not endorsing Schools of Education as our preferred vehicles for these scholarships, nor are we discouraging prospective science teachers who intend to enroll in Schools of Education from applying. We simply want to keep the door open for students who want to pursue science teaching at all levels. For example, most college and university teachers never take a formal course in education. In fact, they may decide while they are majoring in science that becoming a college science teacher is their ultimate goal. Such students are absolutely included in the type of students we are seeking to support. Consideration will be given to those students who provide information about participation in science fairs, lectures attended, museums visited, participation in science clinics (e.g., summer programs), participation in a scientific research project, serving as a science tutor or facilitator, science merit awards, and/or other science-oriented scholarships. Specifically, the Fund encourages applications from Johnson County Community College (JCCC) students who intend to transfer or have transferred to UMKC to complete their undergraduate education. These scholarships will be supplemental for students who have already earned other scholarships. Consideration will also be given to financial need and the student's work and community service record. The minimum cumulative grade point average for first time applicants is 2.5. After the first semester, applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 for the past year. The student must be enrolled in at least six credit hours. Awards will be prorated to reflect that percent of “full-time” that the student’s actual enrollment represents. During the selection process, preference will be given to students who are re-applying for the scholarship and who have met all of the criteria.
